I have never heard of this place, but am glad I bought the groupon on the whim. The staff was awesome and very knowledgable. The tour was very interesting and they took the time to answer our questions. I would recommend this to others and would go back and take friends and family.

Enjoyable and worthwhile! Parking was plentiful, though a bit tough to locate at first (tip-- just make sure you're not on the equestrian-sports side of the park). Lots of forest to hike through. The house was beautiful. Our tour guide was eager to answer any and all questions, and she gave an excellent tour. The fox and carriage museums were fascinating. Overall, my sister and I really enjoyed it

A historical interpreter guides tours through the Greek revival mansion, where chandeliers illuminate hardwood floors and finely woven rugs. Groups can marvel at a collection of 16th-century Flemish tapestries, art nouveau pieces, and displays that chronicle the life of former Virginia governor Westmoreland Davis, who called the mansion home during the early 1900s.

Next, the historian takes groups to the other side of the grand lawn to explore the Winmill Carriage Museum. Viola Winmill collected more than 125 antique carriages from 1928 until her death in 1975. The museum showcases dozens of her best-preserved carriages, including a hansom cab, similar to the carriages used in the Sherlock Holmes movies, and the Silsby steam pumper, which was one of the first carriages to use a rotary motor.

Children aged 6–12 cost $5; children 5 and younger are free.

About The Davis Mansion at Morven Park


Driving through Morven Park's scenic entrance is like entering a living history book. The estate—which encompasses more than 1,000 acres of lawns, wooded areas, and boxwood gardens—has been host to some of the nation's most prominent public servants. In fact, the gates themselves were a gift from the citizens of Baltimore to former mayor Thomas Swann Jr., the estate's 19th-century owner. After passing the gate, the road winds around to a grand lawn and a mansion that dates back to 1781. As visitors walk through this lush estate, they'll see a Greek Revival portico that leads into a foyer awash with Flemish tapestries and ornately carved wood furnishings, where velvet-curtained doorways lead into a Renaissance great hall, a Jacobean dining room, and a French drawing room. Nearby, intricate displays highlight the life of Westmoreland Davis, the 55th governor of Virginia who lived in Morven Park during the early 20th century.
