We like touring houses, birthplaces etc. of U.S. Presidents. Had been here before a while back. This time was different. It was better. Except for the hard of hearing and long winded tour guide. The house itself is lovely as are the gardens. We got to see the whole house and surrounding areas this time as opposed to the first... More

The museum is well maintained. They do a nice job of highlighting a mostly overlooked era in U.S. History. They also have an ice cream social which is nice.

A beautiful house of our former President Harrison. The furnishings and daily lifestyle is well preserved and restored The garden is nice, and celebrating July 4th with a Naturalization Ceremony is a very special day there.

We arrived at 10-30 to be told that there were no tours until 12-30 pm as the building was full of boored school children (my opinion). Nevertheless, our 12-30 tour was excellent, our tour guide was interesting, enthusiastic and very informative. A full 90 minutes around the very original building with a considerable amount of original artifacts.A first class insight... More

The house was very stately and showed the love and family of our former President. Many artifacts were arranged so that you felt that you are in a home and not a museum. The guides are knowledgeable and offer many funny stories. The tour is not rushed and you will love the home.

Four seniors spent a day in Indianapolis last week. Among the places we wanted to visit was this beautiful old home of our 23rd President. We had not done much research on Benjamin Harrison or his home, so we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The home is very well-maintained with many original pieces. For the...

Just a few minutes from downtown Indianapolis, is the home of our 23rd president, Benjamin Harrison. Behind the main house is what looks like a garage and that's where you go to purchase your tour tickets. We met our tour guide who walked us through nearly every room in the house with stories of the President and his family. Our... More

I love history and I love old houses. I took my Mom to visit the Harrison Home and overall we were pleased. The tour was guided so you moved at the pace of the tour guide. The length of the tour was too long. It would have been great at half the time.

Tour guide David was very helpful and friendly. The home is very well kept as is the grounds around the home. Very peaceful. 2nd time visiting and looking forward to a 3rd visit.
