Acorn Hall Museum Etiquette



Acorn Hall is original to the nineteenth century and contains priceless objects that were owned by the Schermmerhorn, Crane, and Hone families. In order to preserve the Hall's authenticity, we request that all visitors observe and adhere to the following considerations:


Please stay with your guide during the tour.


Visitors are not to touch the artifacts or to lean on the walls or furnishings. "Please Touch" samples of many of the wallpapers in the house are available in their respective rooms.


Flash photography, filming, and video recording are not permitted inside Acorn Hall.


Food, candy, or beverages are not permitted inside the building, but may be enjoyed on either porch or around the grounds.


Smoking is prohibited in and around Acorn Hall or the Carriage House.


As a courtesy to your guide and other guests, please silence your cell phone and/or electronic devices during a tour.


Strollers are to remain on the front porch.


We have objects available for children to touch and examine, and we ask for your assistance with helping keep over-eager hands from objects not specifically designed for their use.
