Living History Tours: It's 1932

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 27-05-2013 02-09-2013 15 Living History Tours: It's 1932 It's the summer of 1932 and William K. Vanderbilt II has just circumnavigated the globe in his new 264-foot yacht, Alva. He's purchased a mummy in Cairo and brought it back to display in his museum -- coinciding with the opening of Boris Karloff's latest horror movie, The Mummy. The famous fashion designer Coco Chanel is coming to New York to open a show of her first jewelry designs, and is a guest of the Vanderbilts at their Eagle's Nest estate on the Long Island Gold Coast. Also on the guest list is Elsa Maxwell, the notorious gossip columnist, an intimate friend of the Vanderbilt women. For more than a decade, Living History tours of the Vanderbilt Mansion have given summer visitors a kind of time-machine trip to the 1930s. Museum staff member-actors, in costume and in character as household servants and famous guests, take visitors through the sprawling 24-room, Spanish-Revival waterfront mansion and regale them with stories about the family, its guests and its adventures. Saturdays and Sundays through September 2, 2013. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=140135 Vanderbilt Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
