A view of the main entranct to Kykuit, the John D. Rockefeller mansion.

A majestic paradise with sweeping river views.

See the Hudson Valley’s top cultural attraction! Built between 1906 and 1913, Kykuit was home to four generations of the Rockefeller family, beginning with the philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. His business acumen made him, in his day, the richest man in America. Now a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this extraordinary landmark has been continuously and meticulously maintained for more than 100 years.

The mansion is an historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, operated and maintained by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund as a center for its philanthropic programs. Historic Hudson Valley operates the public visitation program.

There are three distinct Kykuit tours available:

  • Classic Tour: Great for first-time visitors. Your visit will include the main floor of the house, art galleries, Inner Garden, golf room, and Coach Barn. The tour is 2 hours, including the shuttle bus ride.
  • Grand Tour:  Includes everything in the Classic Tour, plus extra time in the gardens and art galleries, as well as a visit to the second floor of the home. The tour is 3 hours, including the shuttle bus ride.
  • Selected Highlights Tour: This tour includes the main floor of the house, Inner Garden, and West Terrace. The perfect choice for those with busy schedules. The tour is 90 minutes, including the shuttle bus ride.

Location: All Kykuit tours originate from the Visitor Center at Philipsburg Manor, 381 North Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591.
