I was expecting to be able to tour the entire home, but half of the house (the upstairs) was a museum exhibit that didn't tie in to the history of the home. I was expecting to be able to enjoy the home. They were setting...More

Amazing building, architecture, history. I iPad guided tour made it a truly special experience. Great history of the time and subsequent years.

I can only imagine having a splendid home like this for six to eight weeks of the year on the water. The grand staircase was stunning, like something out of a fairytale or a dream. The self-guided tour was well done and allows for moving...More

Hi! There is no set dress code because the Pierre Cardin exhibition is just like any other museum exhibition you would go to. Dress as fashionably as you'd like - but definitely, wear comfortable shoes is the one thing I... More
