The tour was a little boring due to our guide, Dominque. He was not very savvy about the history. The tea was very mediocre. The food was ok, would have been better with A warm soup instead of fruit.

I love learning about how people used to live. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable. Beware, the day I was there it was quite hot and there is no air conditioning. There are also no photos allowed inside the house.

It's a great one-time visit and is next to other museums. This museum can be seen in less than an hour.

Fantastic visit of a slice of Denver history. The house is in terrific condition and contained 90% of the original furniture and objects belonging to the Evans family. While they keep the house fairly dark for preservation, they let you walk around the room and even encourage you to do so to admire everything. The guide was terrific, very informative,... More

Historic house, lovingly restored. Very convenient (right behind the Denver Art Museum). Exceptionally well-informed tour guides. Admission included in membership for the Colorado History Museum.

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
