So you have to buy an admission ticket. And then there are a couple of different types of tours which are no additional cost (a tour is the only way you can get into the house). This place is amazing, a wide and varied collection...More

Winterthur seemed like a beautiful place, and we were looking forward to seeing it. Instead,...More

My mother and I visited Winterthur yesterday. I’ve done many, many house tours over the years and this was one of the very best. The landscaping is extraordinary and the interiors are gorgeous.
Our visit was made especially meaningful by the two docents we were...More
We went to the Gardens to see the Folly Exhibits. There is a large parking area adjacent with a small walk to the main office. We decided to take the Tram ride to see most of them (note: Tram dose not go by all of...More

I have not done the Yuletide Tour either. All of their tours have some things included and things you can do on your own. Check out their website for details. You will also see on their website offerings of discounts for certain events. I found them at the "bookstore". We ordered something in advance and then received a discount on admission.
