The facility is Benjamin Harrison's home and the house is remarkably well preserved. My wife and I showed up late in the afternoon, and the docent who gave the tour was worth every moment we spent. The docent had a remarkable knowledge of Harrison and his family and knew the home & art & furniture. I don't think there was... More

Never learned much about the 23rd President in school. This tour was spectacular!!!! Learned about the man, the family, and the times. My kids were very impressed. Great snapshot of the late 1800's in America. Tour guide was phenomenal!!! Telling anyone going to Indy to take an hour and learn about their country and a solid President.

We visited the home on July 4th and had a very nice time. Seeing the presidents house was very neat and historical. The staff was very friendly and played the parts well. The tour lasts around an hour and there were games for the kids to play.

Special programs and an Ice Cream Social at the Benjamin Harrison Home made it a fun 4th of July afternoon for us, our children and our grandchildren. There were 1890s games on the lawn--croquet, hoop rolling, etc.--music and a "balloon man" fashioning balloon hats and things for the kids. The home offered free group tours with presentations by the characters... More

Lovely looking home and area surrounding...we had walked 35 minutes to get there (we are walkers!) and unfortunately found out the 11 o'clock tour was cancelled as they were short staffed that day. We would have to wait for at least 45 minutes for the 70 minute tour. We just didn't have the time to wait so it was disappointing.... More

Visited on Thursday at Noon. Our guide was truly knowledgable about Benjamin Harrison and his family. And his political career. The home is beautifully maintained. There are many personal posessions of Benjamin Harrison and his wife Caroline. There were also many items from his second wife, Mary. I especially enjoyed Caroline's works of art and the pieces of fashion from... More

We stopped here on 6/12. The house is a bit hard to find, especially the parking. It is behind the house off of a rutted alley. The entrance fee is $10 for adults with discounts for seniors (over 65) and AAA (one discount per AAA member) The tour takes 1.5 hours and you cover three floors. We took the stairs... More

I really loved seeing how President Harrison lived in that time period and it was a special treat to go at Christmas when the house is all decorated. I'm sort of a history nut and I was pleased with the staff's ability to answer all my questions and tell us all sorts of interesting facts about the president and how... More

We were warmly greeted on a Sunday afternoon. The guide was enthusiastic about her job and took lots of time explaining various aspects of the 16 room house.
