This museum is an example of outstanding research and restoration. There were only two of us on the tour, so we benefitted from a knowledgeable guide and her uninterrupted attention. She also handled our questions very well. I never knew that our first president, George Washington, stayed in Wethersfield. A highlight of the tour is a visit to the bedroom... More

A very educational and interesting museum. Learned some new things about those that shaped our nation. Our own personal tour guide Elizabeth was exceptional.

The three houses have been beautifully preserved, each from a different era--Colonial to Victorian. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and gives the family history of each house. The museum shop has beautiful items you won't see everywhere. The Victorian home was beautifully decorated for Christmas.

My wife and I were the only ones on a tour on a Saturday morning in December. The houses were decorated for Christmas to make things a little more interesting. The tour actually covers three houses, the Joseph Webb house, the Silas Deane house and the Isaac Stevens house. George Washington actually did sleep in the Webb house for several... More

Windsor is the oldest town in CT settled in 1633. Wethersfield follows as it was settled in 1634. Wethersfield still wants to believe otherwise.

It was less than $20 per person for the tour of this house. I would recommend it to all CT residents, you learn so much about our history.

I recently moved to Wethersfield and I take everyone who visits to the Webb Deane Stevens museum. So far, I've learned new things each time I visit. If you're in a rush, you can just tour the house that George Washington stayed in and planned the Battle of Yorktown. If you are interested in history, I recommend touring all three... More

Everyone in the area should visit this museum..Connecticut should be very proud of its role in history and this is the place to turn back the clock..Not only for history buffs but a place for families and students to learn about its role in the American Revolutionary War..Who could pass up walking through the doors of a house George Washington...

We were in Wethersfield researching my family tree and decided to visit these historic homes. Our guide was very knowledgeable and patiently answered all of our questions. It gave us a good feel for what life was like in this town in the 1700's. Well worth the price of admission to see these homes!

Lots of great information, especially if you like Civil War History and antiques. It was great to see three houses to compare socioeconomic differences and the effects of history. Well priced also!
