We learned of the Morris Jumel mansion from the Holzer Files on tv. We love a good ghost story and this house delivers! My husband and I were visiting NYC and decided to check out the tour. We spent about 30 minutes doing the tour of the grounds of the outside of the mansion and learning more about the history and then we moved inside for a self guided tour where you could spend as much time as you would like. We ended up spending at least an hour inside checking out the different rooms that we heard were haunted from the show. And Eliza‘s room we definitely felt a heaviness. It was so much fun I wish we could’ve been in town for the for the paranormal investigation, they were doing the following weekend. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in history or in true haunted houses.

The Morris-Jumel Mansion in New York is like a time machine that takes you back to the 18th century. It's this old, elegant house where George Washington once hung out during the Revolutionary War. You get to stroll through these fancy rooms with creaky wooden floors and imagine what life was like back when wigs were cool. The garden outside is a peaceful escape from the city buzz. If you're into history or just want a break from modern chaos, it's a cool spot to check out.

Very interesting 1765 historical home with tidbits on George Washington and Aaron Burr as well as a 19th century female entrepreneur, Eliza Jumel. Lovely interior with astounding wallpaper. Take note of the “Aaron Burr desk.” Several of the temporary exhibitions are unique and inspiring (Revised Histories). Docents are friendly and informative. Beautiful grounds to wander and maybe have a picnic lunch? Near to Sylvan Terrace which is worth seeing too. Given what NYC offers, it is not for a first time NYC visitor perhaps, but the house should be on every historian’s “to do” list. They also have a paranormal tour that sounds intriguing.

Exceeded my expectations as other reviews on here were a bit rough. I thought the rooms were well thought out and lots of information on the families that lived here. Oldest house in Manhattan so it deserves to be looked after.

Had a great visit at the mansion yesterday with a self-guided tour. The staff was very gracious in welcoming my wife and I, and you could tell they were very knowledgeable and passionate about the mansions history.

The mansion is tucked away in a very busy area of the city and sits atop a commanding location. The many rooms are nicely appointed with many pieces of furniture specific to the mansion and are nicely interpreted.

The tour will take approximately 1 hour or so to navigate on both the 1st and 2nd floors. There is a small gift shop with some thoughtful items for purchase. A face mask will be required, as is proof of a Covid vaccination.

If you’re in the area and, especially if you appreciate and are interested in Revolutionary War era history, you should plan on making a reservation prior to your visit. It’s definitely worth a visit and can benefit from your admission dollars!!!

Support the museum staff’s efforts as they do they a wonderful job sharing the mansions history, and while you’re in the area, consider making a quick trip over to the Alexander Hamilton home, The Grange, about 2 miles away, too!

Desperate being surrounded by more modern developments, there is still a sense of history at this fine location. Easy to reach and adjacent to Sylvan Terrace

This beautiful historic mansion, which is the oldest surviving house in Manhattan, has a fascinating history which was brought to life by our excellent tour guide Karen. She shared wonderful anecdotes about the women and men who lived in this mansion as we toured The grounds and the interior which includes beautiful Empire period furnishings many of which are original to the families who occupied the home. Among the famous or infamous people associated with the house is Aaron Burr but you have to go on Karen’s tour to hear About the even more interesting women who lived there!

The rooms were sparsely decorated with fewer pieces actually from this house than I had hoped.
The exterior is shabby with peeling paint and the park is run down.
The entry process is difficult and cumbersome and the staff and management are unwelcoming and unfriendly. The front door has a barrage of signage (“No restrooms inside”) in addition to threats and warnings but I could find no information on how actually to get it. I didn’t know to ring the bell, use the knocker, bang, or keep turning the knob, so I tried all three. I felt uncomfortable and unwelcome as nothing seemed to work. After a while the door finally opened so I can’t give any advice as to which method is correct. An elaborate entry procedure followed and the judgmental and humorless demeanor of the “welcoming” staff left me feeling shaken. It took almost as long to get into the house as it did to tour its few rooms.
It also bothered me that exhibits seem out of touch with today’s social climate. Platitudes (such as BLM) covering the otherwise empty upstairs hallway walls (surprisingly few paintings) ring empty as if they are being used to cover what may be an actual lack of diversity among the management staff. It is as if a poorly diverse management is misusing the important BLM movement as a fashionable trinket to cover its own shortcomings, like icing on stale cake.
It is a pity that the Morris Jumel Mansion is such a disappointment. Generations of supporters have poured a fortune of time, good will and donations into this project only to have been squandered by today’s archaic management.
On the good side, the standoffishness of management leads to very few visitors so I easily got an available slot on the day of the visit. While a small handful of visitors entered exactly at 2pm., I was the only visitor by 2:30 so I felt alone in this lonely house. Otherwise, it is a long trip up to 160th Street and it is not really worth it.

We scheduled a private tour for our family via email, as the regularly scheduled times were outside of our availability. They have a great app as well as flip cards to help you tour through the home and get a good sense of both the history of the house and the stories of the people who lived there. There is a scavenger hunt activity available for kids and my son thought it was super cool looking for the hidden object. We really enjoyed our visit and learned a lot!

The Morris-Jumel Mansion provides both a guided and self-guided tour into this great restored colonial-era home & grounds. The home provides a glimpse into Early New York City through restored rooms (complete with original furniture), mostly from the period 1820 - 1840. Room informational signs provide a history of the furnishings and how it relates to the family of that era. For such an old house (the oldest on Manhattan), it's interesting that the original furniture, wallpaper, etc. have survived until today.

The house is also connected to George Washington (a room shows how it was laid out while briefly serving as his headquarters during the battles for New York during the Revolutionary War) and served as Aaron Burr's wedding location during his very brief marriage to one of the residents.

If you are interested in early New York and some of the famous people of this historical period, this is a good stop. Also be sure to say hello to the family of cats living outside on the grounds.
