One should understand that this is a guided tour, so it's a not a free romp around the mansion, and the 'mansion' is in fact just a large nice old home. But we surely recommend it. Historical and in some particulars quite lovely. The host(s) were passionate and knowledgeable about the place. They continue to work toward preserving this historic site and making it an interesting attraction.

The Mansion is a hidden treasure. Well worth the trip.

If traveling from New Jersey, take the Ben Franklin Bridge to Kelly Drive. It is a much more scenic ride and direct route than taking the Tacony Bridge. The "mansion" is pretty cool. Still needs to have a lot of restoration work done. I nice way to spend an hour on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

I went with girlfriends, we all felt it was really nice & very interesting! The tour is about 45 minutes long. They hold many other events there. Is well worth the trip, especially with all the great shoppes & eateries in beautifull Chestnuthill!

Mansion worth the trip!

Make sure to walk around the block - nice to also see the architecture of neighboring houses and neat to see that this block is known for being part of the underground railroad.

Get there a little early if you'd like to walk around the surrounding gardens. Lots of cute little cafes in Mt. Airy for an afternoon snack before or after the tour.

Great historical tour. A gem in the neighborhood. Should be more strongly promoted.

There was a great tour of a beautiful Victorian-restored home. There is plenty of street parking for those driving and a Septa train at the bottom of the street.

From Our Editors

Step foot onto the lush landscaped grounds of the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, and you're instantly transported to the Victorian era?a time when ladies toted lacy parasols, gentlemen sported tall silk hats, and children played with coal-powered Game Boys. Beyond the stately mansion's immaculately manicured lawns and brick fa?ade lie 17 restored rooms, replete with lavish Rococo and Renaissance revival furnishings, elaborate ceiling designs, and Victorian-era appliances such as cast-iron stoves and gas-lit chandeliers.

This museum of Victorian architecture and culture hosts weekly tours, as well as a monthly Upstairs Downstairs tour that explores the lives and challenges of women in Victorian-era Philadelphia. The mansion also stages theater performances throughout the year, featuring the works of Victorian-era greats including Charles Dickens, Bram Stoker, and Louisa May Alcott.
