Holiday Wonderland: Newport MansionsThe glitter of gold and the sparkle of silver will dazzle you as you tour three magnificent mansions decked out in Yuletide finery. Music, tours, and spectacular decorations highlight the celebration of Christmas at the Newport Mansions.

The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House--three National Historic Landmarks and icons of the Gilded Age in America--are filled with thousands of poinsettias, fresh flowers, evergreens and wreaths.

A total of 24 decorated Christmas trees reflecting individual room decor anchor many of the magnificent spaces. Dining tables set with period silver and china complete the elegant setting. And windows of each mansion are lit with individual white candles, in keeping with the colonial tradition.

Again this year, local pastry chefs will create gingerbread replicas of many of the Newport Mansions, which will be on display in the kitchen of The Breakers beginning on Saturday, November 29. Come and see these amazing confectionery creations, made entirely of edible materials, as the chefs compete for cash prizes and bragging rights.

New this year will be a working garden scale model of the Vanderbilt family's New York Central Railroad, which will be on display in the second floor loggia of The Breakers.

Also on view in the loggia will be a display of tabletop trees, decorated by Newport school children. Visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite tree, and the participating schools will receive cash prizes to support their art programs.

We invite you to make holiday memories with your family by visiting The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House during the holiday season.

All three houses will be decorated and open daily for tours. The Breakers opens daily at 9 a.m., The Elms and Marble House open at 10 a.m. The last tour admission at all three houses is at 4 p.m., and the houses & grounds close at 5 p.m.

Please note, on Christmas Eve, December 24, the last tour admission at all 3 houses will be at 3 p.m. Houses are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
