Very knowledgeable tour guides. The house furnishings are beautiful. The home is papered and painted in style as it would have been when the family lived there.

We went to the property to kill some time on a Sunday morning. I'm not much of a old-home buff, but everyone else in our party was, so I went along. They all enjoyed the house and surrounding property. I was disappointed that the 3rd floor was not accessible to guests. If you are looking for an old home with... More

Having recently moved to Kentucky, my husband and I have began exploring our new state. Bardstown, Kentucky was highly recommended. This small,quaint town is centrally located to several attractions including the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Very near the center of town is My Old Kentucky Home. As new Kentuckians, we were happy to visit but did not take the tour of... More

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to take the tour, but spent a few minutes walking around the grounds myself. The grounds and house were beautiful! I hope to visit again in the future!

If you visit, you must find Ann, the tour guide at the Mansion! In period costume she guided us with expert knowledge through the lovely home. It was stunningly decorated for the Holidays. We did not have to wait for the tour, we embarked on it almost minutes after we arrived. Ann was able to confidently answer every question we... More

Really enjoyed the tour guide who said she'd been doing it for over 20 years. She was upbeat, funny and very knowledgeable about the house. Decorated for Xmas was the icing on the cake. The home with it's 13.6' ceilings seems so much bigger on he inside than what it looks like from outside. The saddest think i heard is... More

The Old Kentucky Home has a short free presentation via a TV set and some interesting information posted on the walls. You can walk the grounds, but the actual home tour costs money to take. The gift shop has many items to tempt you. I did not take the paid tour, so I cannot comment on that. Also on the... More
