The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad

Included with estate admission

Enjoy an intimate look at the family that created Biltmore with our exhibition, The Vanderbilts at Home and Abroad. This exhibition sheds light on the time the Vanderbilts spent as a family at Biltmore and beyond. Located in Antler Hill Village.

Biltmore’s exciting new exhibition showcases breathtaking large-scale glass sculptures in an equally breathtaking setting: the historic gardens of America’s Largest Home®. The vibrant colors and organic shapes that distinguish Chihuly’s dramatic creations are captivating presented within Biltmore’s artfully designed landscapes. The sculptures' placement in the gardens offers an intriguing juxtaposition of the master works of two consummate artists—premier American artist Dale Chihuly and revered Biltmore landscape designer Frederick Law Olmsted.

Biltmore House & Gardens will open to the public for special viewings of Chihuly’s stunning large-scale glass sculptures after dark. Chihuly Nights at Biltmore—by reservation only—is an enchanting opportunity to witness the effects of dramatic nighttime lighting upon the luminous colors and graceful forms of these spectacular installations. Sunset over the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, live music in the gardens, and a wine bar make the evening experience all the more enticing. Chihuly’s towering works of art illuminated against a night sky surrounded by the timeless beauty of Biltmore House & Gardens: a truly moving, memorable experience.

 

Reservations required; guests must have an evening admission. Biltmore Annual Passholders enjoy a $20 savings per admission.

For a limited time, our Conservatory hosts a beautifully executed botanical model train display!

With 800 feet of rails and trains traversing six separate lines at different eye levels, this is a one-of-a-kind, fun-for-all-ages garden experience.
