From exploring mansions to feeding pond fish, there’s a lot for kids to do at Castle in the Clouds

There are so many things for kids to explore at Castle in the Clouds, they’ll want to visit more than once! At the 1914 Lucknow Mansion, they can check out vintage clothing and, on the basement tour, see how the servants lived, or go on a scavenger hunt.
