If you enjoy beautiful homes and grounds and art, this is a place not to be missed. Don’t expect a major art museum like you will find in Houston, Dallas, or Fort Worth. But there is plenty of art to admire, but with the added...More

It’s around $20 for Adults and $15 for active duty military.My suggestion is to visit during free events and free general admission days! It’s not really worth the $20 entrance fees.
