"Place de la Musique" The Sanfilippo Mansion
"Place de la Musique" The Sanfilippo Mansion Tuesday March 24, 2020 $ 101
A spectacular morning is in store for you at the 57-acre Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills, known as “Place de la Musique.” Jasper Sanfilippo, the Fisher nut and snack food magnate known for his nut products, spent over 30-years assembling one of the world’s greatest collections of restored antique music machines. As you tour his incredible mansion, you’ll step into the Music Room, described by some as “unequaled in the world.” See the world’s largest theatre pipe organ and marvel at the collection of chandeliers, tiffany-style lamps, and phonographs. See the Weltre Wotan Brass Orchestrion, the largest known to exist. In the Carousel Building see the “Eden Palais” carousel, the only complete European Salon carousel in the world. With an 89-foot wide and 42-foot tall-carved façade and life-size carved horses, giant art glass butterflies, and an 89-key gavioli band organ, it is a masterpiece not to be missed! For lunch, enjoy another unique experience as we step into yesteryear at Chessie's Restaurant, where we dine inside a vintage 1927 rail car!
