Nemours Estate is where a visitor might believe he or she magically just stepped into Europe. Modeled after Versailles, Nemours is a masterpiece of design with its mansion, fountains, artwork, gilded sculpture and what is reputedly the largest formal French garden in North America. The mansion is now self-paced and self-guided, with interpreters stationed at key locations. Visitors will be able to tour the mansion on their own, spending as much or as little time there as they’d like. We no longer require or recommend advance reservations, except for groups of 10 or more visitors. Open May through December.
