Staying here has always been on my bucket list and I'm so glad we did! It was fantastic!! The staff was wonderful and the house was extremely clean. We got to explore the house and check out all of the Borden family memorabilia. Plenty of books are available, as well as movies you can watch to learn more about Lizzie... More

Great Tour!! Worth the trip. Gift shop had some funny items for sale. If you don't know who Lizzie Borden was, that's okay, you'll find out. Growing up we used to jump rope to the ditty, "Lizzie Boden took an axe, gave her mother 40 whacks, when she saw what she had done, she gave her father 41." I finally... More

This place is somewhere we just happened to stumble upon between boston and NYC. The tour was very enjoyable. I've been reading a lot about the Borden family in the few days since.

Came back after first visiting the Lizzie Borden House in 2013 and it was a pleasure. Tour was nicely conducted and lasted well beyond the allotted time. It was nice to see some of the Borden House B&B Staff again and the gift shoppe have a few new items for sale. Tour price was the same $15 unless you had... More

My daughter really wanted to see this - but we were a bit uncertain. We made it to the 1100 tour and it was done well. The museum is not much of a museum, but the house tour is the thing. They are done on the hour and last about 55 minutes or so. You go through the whole house... More

I have always been fascinated by The Lizzie Borden story so a trip to the house and museum was a must. The place is generally just creepy. I had considered staying over in the bed and breakfast but found the cost prohibitive..just as well. Our tour guide was knowledgeable but threw a bit too much personal belief and information our...

Our tour leader was Danielle & she really brought the story to life. We had a rather large group touring & she handled the crowd well. This is a must see attraction if you are anywhere in the area. I was surprised to see it was in the downtown area. She will tell you neat facts about the story. You... More

I have wanted to come here for years, and it was worth the wait. My daughter and I have the whole house to ourselves. Creepy? Yes. But so great! The tour itself was worth it all. The guide, Rick, is very knowledgable and interesting. He really brought the story to life.
