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.

We left our hotel 45 minutes early, got lost but still arrived right at 2:31 for the last tour of the day and the place had already closed. No grace period! We did the Molly Brown House the day before and late comers were still joining the tour 15 minutes after it started!!!!

I truly enjoyed my tour here. The home is mostly original to the second family who owned it, and most everything is very well preserved. I recommend a visit!

What I loved about this place was the history behind it and all the varies antiques with in the house. Now the I didn't like the fact that on this second visit compared to the previous year they changed the history on the house and who owned it etc.. and the lady giving the guided tours bless her heart is...

This is an awesome late 1880's built home. My mother and I love historical tours and it was lovely seeing such a beautiful home in the heart of Denver, in my home town. Tickets were only $6 and when took the tour, we were the only ones there, so it was very pleasant getting to ask all the questions we... More

I love history and even more ... OLD homes and buildings. Located downtown between high rise buildings and right across the street from the Museum of Modern Art, this place was sorely out of place and we almost missed it! Our tour guide was knowledgeable but lacked enthusiasm. The building is beautifully furnished and transports you back in time. But... More

Despite the great contributions of these two families the house is unimpressive.The only room that's really worthwhile is the library and that comes from the original governors mansion. The home is dark and brooding which was not helped by the lack of enthusiasm by our docent. He just wasn't excited about being there and it showed.

Well worth the visit and reasonable price for the tour. (some websites have 2 for 1 deals). If possible, take time to watch the video in the gift shop before beginning the tour. The docent gives an informative tour which lasts about 45-60 minutes. The home is beautifully restored, and is such a wonderful architectural structure from the 1880s. I... More

I love touring old houses and hope my children will grow to love it as well. The 45-minute guided tour was interesting for the adults and not too long for the kids. Many of the furnishings are originals. This is worth your time. The entrance fee is $6 or less per person.

The Byers-Evans House was well worth the visit. It is required that you visit on a guided tour, and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the house and its contents. Because the family lived in the house until 1981 when it was donated to the Colorado Historical Society, most of the furnishings are original to the house.... More
