For the fastest and most touch-free entry, we recommend purchasing tickets in advance. All event tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Friends of Auburn Heights Office (302-239-2385) weekdays 9 am to 5 pm. Walk-ins are welcome but may be subject to wait times if capacity limits have been met by those already on-site and parties with reservations. As always, Steamin’ Day admission is free for members.
General Admission (Rides Ticket) includes 4 rides in the antique autos or Auburn Valley Railroad: $12 ages 13 and up, $8 ages 12 and under (infants free). General/Rides Ticket admission is free for Friends of Auburn Heights members.
Mansion & Grounds Only Admission (no rides): $12 ages 13 and up, $6 ages 12 and under (infants free). Members may tour the mansion for $8 (ages 13 and up), $4 (ages 12 & under). If possible, family groups will tour independently of those outside their household; however, Delaware State Parks interpreters may form groups that include people outside household units.
Group Rates: Discounts available for groups of 20 or more when booked in advance. For group inquiries, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard or Discover. Sorry, no pets except service dogs.
Please Note: We never let a little drizzle dampen our spirits, so all events are rain or shine. In the event of especially inclement weather, you may call the Friends of Auburn Heights office at (302) 239-2385 for a recorded message that will indicate any change in regular plans.
Food and beverages: Free popcorn may be enjoyed by all visitors during Steamin’ Day events, and prepackaged foods like chips and beverages will be available for sale (while supplies last). Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the grounds at one of our many picnic tables.
