November 21, 2020 to January 3, 2021
The glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as you tour
three magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours,
and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at
the Newport Mansions.
The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House--three National Historic
Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America--are filled with
thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths. Thirty decorated Christmas trees will reflect the magnificent decor in many of the rooms. Dining
tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting. Windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in keeping with the colonial tradition.
We invite you to make holiday memories with your family by visiting The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House during the holiday season.
All three houses will be decorated and open daily for tours from November 21, 2020 through January 3, 2021. The Breakers opens daily at 9 a.m., The Elms and Marble House open at 10 a.m. The last tour admission at all three houses is at 4 p.m., and the houses & grounds close at 5 p.m.
