Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Newport Mansions.
Five remarkable audio tours bring you a new and unique perspective on the lives of the people who lived and worked in the grand mansions of Newport.
Based on diaries, letters, records and oral histories, these audio tours offer the personal stories of the men and women who lived in each house and the household staff who cared for them.
At all of the Newport Mansions, you will find a world of exceptional elegance and inspiration in architecture, art, interior design and landscapes.
Explore 250 years of American history at our historic properties, located on 88 acres of gardens and parks.
