Great for history or presidential buffs. Through the efforts of the society and the Harrison family most of the items in the house actually belonged to the Harrison's when they lived in the house which is somewhat unique. What made this tour really stand out was that it included 90 percent of the house and you walk through most rooms.... More

This was our first stop on our family vacation. The house tour is really nice - you get to go into more rooms than the average house tour. HUGE house and then there are the grounds and carriage house out back. Great tour. Very informative. We went from here to the grave site that was a few miles away. It... More

My family (myself, wife, mother-in-law, 4 children ages 17,14,9,7) travels every summer. We have visited many presidential homes. This was our last stop on a 19 day 9 state trip across our great country. The house and tour were excellent. Tours are on the hour and half hour. We had a very knowledgeable recent college grad (Purdue) as our tour... More

Beautiful home, as previous trip advisors said, lots of interesting and original items that belong to Pres. Harrison and his family. You get to visit all three floors of the house and actually walk though the rooms for up close look. Makes you feel like you really new them. We have been though many Presidential homes and this is one... More

Good tour but started late. Was supposed to start at 2:30 but didn't get going until almost 3. Nice house and informative tour.

Lucky for everyone, many of the original furnishings are in this house and are placed where they were when the Harrisons lived here. General and Mrs. would like feel right at home today. We had an extensive tour and asked lots of questions. We weren't rushed and our guide was just as helpful as can be. Mrs. Harrison is the... More

Well preserved home of #23. Lots of interesting history of the wonderful furnishings, most of which were part of the Harrison family. Always love to see the actual books our president's read/collected, and there are many in the home. Guide was knowledgeable and able to answer most questions. This is basically a home/site tour only...didn't expect much Presidential "history" as... More

This house has a fascinating history, and it is well preserved. The tours by knowledgeable guides are excellent. For Independence Day, the Benjamin Harrison house has a celebration on the grounds, with numerous activities for both children and adults.

I took my son to the Benjamin Harrison home over Spring Break 2014. Beautifully well kept Victorian and loads of wonderful history. Being the only two people on the tour, we had the oppotunity to ask as many questions as we wanted. Reasonably priced.

This was a very interesting field trip I took with my daughter's class. I learned alot about a President that was only president for a short time but it was very interesting, very well done and reasonable.
