Docent led tours begin at 1:00pm, the last tour is 3:00pm

This Mediterranean Revival house, completed in 1939 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is noted for its collection of European period rooms. Built and enjoyed by Walter and Lucie Rosen, it continues to inspire the Caramoor International Music Festival, now in its 68th year. Walter Rosen’s vast collection of European and Asian art and furnishings, includes an eight-paneled 18th-century green jade screen from China – one of only two in the world; a gilded bed once owned by Pope Urban VIII; gorgeous chandeliers and fanciful light fixtures, and tapestries, furniture and ceramics from the Renaissance. The tour includes a view of Lucie Rosen's original theremin (built for her by Leon Theremin) and a chance to play a modern one!

Free Arts Day is a Westchester holiday season tradition. Each year, arts lovers of all ages are welcomed at cultural sites throughout the county as arts organizations offer free admissions to their museums, arts centers and historical sites while hosting music and dance performances, storytelling performances, and workshops for every taste.
