Excellent Docent, great story, stunning woodwork and setting: Our guide was a very well spoken young woman, a woodworker herself who was able to help us understand the difficulty behind Esherick’s works, including hidden bits. We really enjoyed the tour and will be back. I highly recommend a trip to this unique museum.
