Things to know before you go
- Ample parking is available at Rosecliff, though bus tours save you the hassle of finding a space. You can see the mansion along Newport’s famous Cliff Walk as well.
- Check before visiting to make sure the facility is open during your visit.
- Bring a set of headphones to listen to the audio tour on your smartphone. If you don’t have a set, ask for a printed script, or simply ask the staff questions as you need.
How to get there
Most travelers will visit Rosecliff via personal vehicle or bus tour—there’s ample parking for vehicles of all lengths (Theresa needed room for her guests’ carriages, after all). You can also access Rosecliff from Newport’s famous 3.5-mile (6-kilometer) Cliff Walk, using Belmont Beach and Marine Avenue to approach from the coast.

When to get there
Plan your trip for after September 1, 2023—Rosecliff and its Gilded Age siblings closed during the COVID-19 pandemic and are some of the last museums to reopen. Once you’ve settled on an open day, try to come around opening time (typically 10am) to avoid the buses, tour groups, and growing crowds.
Exploring nearby attractions
Rosecliff overlooks Sheep Point Cove, with the beautiful (but rocky) Belmont Beach below. This beach is open to the public, is often empty, and connects to the Cliff Walk. To the north you’ll find The Breakers; to the south, you’ll find the Marble House—both are spectacular Gilded Age gems that rival Rosecliff in opulence. If you can, plan a separate day to take in this stretch of the Cliff Walk and its exquisite views.
