I went with my sons 2nd grade class and was amazed. It's really well run and informative. The kids lived it too and payed attention. I hear it's beautiful at Christmas too!

Benjamin Harrison was the grandson of a President and is not the subject of a lot of media or historic attention. His home is very nice and they have great tour guides to explain the home and the life of Benjamin Harrison. This is worth a stop for anyone interested in US history or old homes

I have always loved the Benjamin Harrison Home. It is in such perfect condition, 80% of the artifacts are original, and an amazing victorian mansion. My recent tour (I havent visited in a few years) was great. The interior is so beautiful, and the 3rd floor ballroom like usual has interesting exhibits. I am very pleased at the new reconstruction... More

I accompanied my son's fourth grade class on a tour to the Harrison Home today, an incredibly beautiful home full of history and stories. Our tour guide was well prepared with lots of interesting facts. I can't wait to return on my own to see more.

Indianapolis is fortunate to have a former President as a resident and his home is a museum within itself loaded with interesting history. It has been maintained in pristine condition and is a must see.

Went with my daughters 4th grade class and I am embarrassed to say that even though I have lived here my whole life this was my first trip. I enjoyed it so much and plan to go back without the 90 extra 4th graders.

I really enjoyed the tour of this house. It was about 1 1/2 hours long and very detailed. The main floor is filled with nearly all original Harrison pieces. Our docent was very knowledgable and could answers questions not just give a memorized speech. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this tour.

This is a beautiful historical place. The gardens are beautiful as well. The docents are very good here. Some are from the local DAR. They are very informative. A lot of the pieces of furniture belonged to the Harrison family. The home is beautifully restored. It is easy to park in the Harrison lot or directly on the street in... More

I enjoyed my tour of this home. I was lucky that I came at a time when I got my own guided tour! I was able to speak to the tour guide more in depth, than you usually get during a tour. I learned about a president that I didn't know much about. It was amazing how many original pieces... More
