Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • A trip here is like going to multiple museums at once, as you can see a tycoon's mansion, a natural history display, and head to outer space at a planetarium.
  • Set on 43 acres, the museum, now run by Suffolk County, NY, has everything from fine paintings to a seaplane.
  • The mansion tour is known for its exquisite antiques, and guided tours offer glimpses into the high life led here in the 1930s.
