I have always been fascinated with the Lizzie Borden murders and decided to visit one rainy Sunday morning. Overall, I had a great “axe”perience and would highly recommend the house tour for anyone interested. The Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast/Museum located in Fall River is the former home of the infamous Lizzie Borden, who was accused of killing her father... More

This was hands down one of the best tours I have ever been on in my life. Our tour guide, Nick, was beyond knowledgeable and funny. He presented the facts of the Borden case in an unbiased way-giving facts and a lot of pointers of "think about this". He kept the perfect balance between fact and the possibilities. On the... More

Clear your mind of anything you've ever read or heard of the murder of Mr. and Mrs. Borden. You will get the facts from the excellent tour guide (our guide was Danielle) at the house where the murders took place. Every room in the house is accessible during the tour and each is furnished similar to the time of the... More

I came by to just see it and ended up with the tour. Loved it! Guide was great. I would suggest better options for the gift shop, but all in all good experience.

We arrived for the 10 a.m tour. The gift shop is behind the house, the small parking lot is behind the house too. The parking lot may be able to fit 4 cars though when I was there I saw none (my group arrived by bus). You can also park on the street. The gift shop is small and has... More

Went on Halloween this year, stopped on our way to Salem, and managed to slide into the last tour of the day. The tour guide, Kat, was out of this world, really knowledgeable and kept the tour fun. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Must experience it sometime when you are in new England.

This place was amazing - and our tour guide, Nick, was super! He's only a young guy, but knew TONS and was very confident in his story telling - all of the tour intertwined from beginning to end - I would definitely go back again if I could! Super fun, super creepy - GO. Don't question it, just do it... More

We were in Fall River to meet up with a friend when they advised us that the Lizzie Borden house/museum was really close by so we just had to go! Never hearing about the story of Lizzie Borden I immediately looked up the history and was excited to check it out! "And gave her mother forty whacks" Our tour guide... More

I was born and raised in Fall River and I have heard all the stories, sang the "40 Whacks" song and driven by the Lizzie Borden House more times than I can count. My son and his lovey lady came to town for a visit and we decided, since it's so close to Halloween, to visit the ghoulish residence. Our... More
