Visited two times this summer, first to enjoy the museum and beautiful grounds and gardens and then for a Jazz concert . This is the kind of place you can enjoy alone, it's safe , clean and always inviting. .

The "medieval experience" is a bit erzatz at times, but the flower-filled cloisters, of which there are several, make an enchanting getaway from the city proper. The Unicorn Tapestries have all their magic intact and there are many lovely architectural details worth focusing on. I...More

There is nothing much to do for a 5 year old. There are a lot of stair climbing. There is nothing interactive for a toddler.
