Beautiful museum and gardens. The Tiffany Treasures exhibit will be there through 9/23/18; it is fantastic. Many of the lamps are placed throughout the rooms of the house museum complementing the Paine's permanent collection. The gardens were a delight to stroll through, we especially loved the curvy paths leading through shady and sunny beds of blooms. Truly a delightful visit.

Magical in every way. The formal garden beds mirror the color palette of the Tiffany glass, the exhibition at the Paine until mid -September. The Paine Mansion was designed by an architect to be an English manor house, it was built before the Great Depression, with limestone from Minnesota, and as Mr. Paine was a lumber baron, the interior rooms showcase the artistry of the carpenters, in those years , whose talents were to make wood to appear as folded linen fabric. The carpenters were artisans. The Minnesota limestone inside the house was polished to give it the look of fine marble. There are Tiffany glass lamps in the rooms - on display, and adding to the grand hall of Tiffany glass, many of these works are on well-crafted wood plinths. Colors: orange, blood red, purples, greens, blues, with some of the lamps gilded in gold. Tiffany's art mirrored nature's flora and fauna. Imagine how the plantings in the gardens reflect the colors Tiffany used in his glass. Not to overlook the bronze lamp bases that also mirror leaves, stems, and bark of trees. On this day- mild temperatures and a sun that is absent, imagine too the joy of seeing the glass by Tiffany, and the gardens so beautifully arranged with selected plantings to mirror the colors of the glass. A wonderful experience. There's a new parking area, just steps from the entrance. The lady at the entry was most pleasant. There were gardeners transplanting day lilies and sundry other plantings, happily working and sharing their joy with our group of seven. Beauty in glass and in formal gardens.

Beautiful grounds! We took the kids to watch Midsummers Dream and it was just awesome. It took place outside and they interact with the kiddos who sit up front on mats. There is parking near by and it appears there is a lot to explore. We plan on going back to check it all out.

Beautiful gardens surrounding the estate. Wonderfully preserved interior that is rich in history. I highly recommend visiting the echo chambers on the top floor. The stained glass is stunning, to say the least.

The Nut Cracker in the Castle is amazing. It is really something to see. And all the Christmas trees around the house are so beautiful. When you're done touring the house you need to go have some cocoa and cupcakes in the Sugar Plum Fairy shop.
