Be Our Guests!
FREE Admission for City of Newport residents has returned. The Preservation Society of Newport County invites all City of Newport residents to visit our properties as our guests.
“The Gilded Age” creator Julian Fellowes chose the Newport Mansions as inspiration and settings for the popular HBO series. The Breakers Music Room, shown in the ballroom scene above, is just one of the real Gilded Age spaces that add magnificence to this historical drama. Hear the fascinating stories of people who lived and worked in this grand mansion in person when you visit The Breakers. Check out the new Marble House Children’s Tour, which offers a whimsical perspective with the help of various characters introduced along the way, including Apollo the Sun God, bragging about his curly hair. At Green Animals Topiary Garden, you can picnic with a lion, unicorn or bear while enjoying more than 80 topiaries in the shape of animals and geometric designs, more than 19,000 daffodils in 58 varieties, and over 6,000 tulips!
These are just a few of the experiences to be had at the Newport Mansions. Be sure to check our OPERATING SCHEDULE for updates on house openings and schedule.
