Holiday Tours of Philipse Manor Hall



The Santas stood at attention. There was no time for rest. They had no idea when you'd be coming by for your tour. So stand there they did. No looking to the right or left. No bending of legs or turning of heads. No nothing. Until that teeny tiny one in the front starting asking questions.:

"So when are those Holiday Tours again?" 

The Holiday Tours are held at 2:00 pm Tuesdays -Saturdays, December 4-29 (Except December 12, 15 & 25)

"How about the Candlelight Tours, when do people come for those?" 

Those are Tuesdays - Saturdays as well, but they begin at 7:00 pm. I recommend you call and make reservations for those. For more information: (914) 965-4027


"How much does it cost to go on one of the tours and can we sit down once they pass us? 

No, you may not sit until after the Manor closes for the night. Here are the prices:

Adults                       $5.00

Seniors & Students    $3.00

Children under 12      Free
