The house tour includes both main floors of the house and highlights the connection between the house and gardens, as well as how the Sterns used their home for entertaining and community engagement. The garden tour covers all eight acres of the gardens and gives a more detailed understanding of the landscape design of Edith Biddle Shipman. Garden tours are 45-minute, guide-led walking tours that present the history of Longue Vue and the Stern family in addition to a discussion of the garden design.
