Auburn Heights Nature Preserve Programs
Tours of Auburn Heights, the Marshall family Mansion, and the Marshall Steam Museum are available by appointment for groups of eight or more on non-event days.
Marshall Mansion – Tour the main two floors of this fully-furnished, Queen Anne-style Victorian home. Prior to the donation to Delaware State Parks, this mansion had been home to three generations of the Marshall family.
Marshall Steam Museum – Take a tour of the museum for a chance to see the world’s largest collection of operating steam automobiles. In addition to these amazing cars, there are scale-sized steam locomotives, toy trains, and more. With this impressive collection, the Friends of Auburn Heights give you the opportunity to learn more about life at the dawn of the automotive age.
Tour tickets are $7 per person for either the mansion or museum tour, or $12 for both. Call for information or to schedule a tour. Schedule tours at least one week in advance.
