The Voelker Orth Museum (Bird Sanctuary and Victorian Garden) is a home-turned-museum that provides insight into the lives of our forefathers.
Particularly appealing is the carriage house, garden, and bird sanctuary.
Note the formality of the correct Victorian tea party setting inside the 1880 mansion.
The objective of the Voelker Orth Museum, which was renovated as a museum in 2002, is to preserve the history of Long Island and Queens.
Visitors are welcome to join in on neighborhood walks (which are free) as well as Sunday teas and presentations.
Snacks and a gift store are available.
Suggested admission is $2.
