It is a showcase of early 1900's lifestyle and craftsmanship-a beautiful and hospitable setting for weddings, special events, and meetings. The House offers tours Wednesday through Friday and on Sunday at 1 pm and 3 pm and on Saturday at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm. Also by appointment. Adults-$10 Seniors-$6 Students-$4 Children under the age of 8 are free. We also offer other various discounts.

My sisters and I recently toured Conrad-Caldwell House museum! What a great time we had walking through this huge mansion! Our tour guide was a great lady named Barb and she is a direct descendant of the Caldwell family which brought much passion to the story telling as she guided us from room to room and floor to floor! It's... More

This historic home is a MUST SEE! The docents here are related to the home's former owner so the stories are unparalleled. One special moment was when the docent was pointing out a painting of her Grandfather's sister. She explained her obsession with letting everyone know about her tiny waist and the dress she had on in the image was... More

Very interesting and worth the time. The house is in an area with many attractive, historic homes. While we waited for our tour, we walked the area, using an information sheet we received from one of the guides, who was very helpful.

This is a beautiful-historic old home. So much to see and learn! Our guide was wonderful and it was a great touch that she was a great granddaughter of the original owner!

What a beautiful home, and the exhibits were beautiful, we recommend this attraction. With that being said here is how our experience went. We first arrived and bought our tickets, we waited about ten minutes for the tour to begin. As we were waiting we noticed it was very warm in the house and in the front entryway we were... More

We went on the 1:00 tour. The cost was $10 and all money goes to help restore/preserve the home. It is amazing that this was built in the 1800's. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable.

We host special exhibits at least once a year on various topics having to do with Louisville's history. Our next special exhibit will be "Louisville's River" (in honor of the Belle of Louisville's 100th Birthday) and opens this fall. We charge admission... More

Our tour at the Conrad-Caldwell House Museum was so comprehensive and personal. I loved the fact that it was given by a member of the family. Getting all those little details and memories of the home that it was and a lot of the items that were in it and have been lovingly preserved for our viewing is astounding to... More

Incredible wood work and finishing details of the house. Also interesting museum within the house. There have been ghosts reported, but our guide had no direct encounters.
