Interesting Historical Landmark

I took the tour and enjoyed it! Our guide shared interesting facts and stories involving the home and people who lived there. Step through the threshold of old Colorado.

Through visiting this historic house and taking the guided tour we learned a lot of local history and saw amazing 19th and 20th Century household items.

Jeanie was our guide and she was fantastic. This was an excellent example of a Victorian home and what great stories we heard of the Evans family who lived here generation after generation. Found out this was the same family from Evanston Il who helped found Northwestern university and Denver university as well! Loved the Havaland China in the dining... More

Our tour guide, Stephen, was great. He's full of information on the house, its inhabitants, Denver history, and Colorado history. He made it all fit together, with lots of great details. The house itself is nice, but not something you'd go see strictly for its beauty. The lighting is dim and the colors are dark, so go for the stories,... More

This tour was about 45 minutes long. The tour guide did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. One of the items on display in the home is a phonograph that he played. He knows his history on the home and the families. The home is beautifully restored. We went on a Tuesday and our group was very... More

My husband and I were walking by and we decided to stop in to see this pretty house next to the art museum. Our timing was perfect, as a tour was just starting. The house was donated by the family in the 1980s, and it is full of original furniture and artifacts. The tour guide was knowledgeable and it was... More

Enjoyed the opportunity to learn about Denver history and to see a restored Victorian era home and artifacts. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. TIP! Get a Denver "Entertainment Book" - there's a BOGO coupon for admission.

I went to this museum on a rainy Monday morning and got a guided tour (it's all guided tours) to myself. I enjoyed the tour and chatting with my guide, Maggie, as we went round the rooms. I learnt a lot about the furniture and paintings, many of which belonged to the Evans family. It also gave me a flavour... More

Docents provide guided tours of this historic home, which is fully furnished with the Evans family decor. Family members lived here 92 consecutive years. Somewhat drab and dark by today's styles, the original family items represent the lifestyle of a real family in 1912-1924.
