Your admission will give you an unlimited timeframe to soak up the house, the garden & Dobell Park. You also get a fully trained Volunteer Museum Guide to either escort you through the house or you can self guide yourself with the Museum Guide there for any questions you have.

There is a DVD to view on Dobell, a radio broadcast to listen to and many displays and explanations to read.  We recommend about 2 hours to see and absorb everything.
