I highly recommend this if you like doing really unique and cool things! You check into the the bed and breakfast and they assign you one of the rooms in the house and you can go to your room and get settled and meet some of the other guests staying there. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. At 8:00pm... More

Went with a few girlfriends on the tour. We were really looking forward to this and our expectations were far surpassed. Our 50 minute tour was fun, informative and anything but boring. We really enjoyed ourselves. The tour guide was great ! Best $15 I've spent in a while

I've looked forward to visiting the House for many months. I'm totally fascinated by the idea of the gruesome murders but never "solved" by the legal system of the time. We were regaled by the story by Sue Vickery today. She described the scenes in graphic detail. She also shared which rooms she's most uncomfortable in...that helped with creepy! While... More

This was a fun tour and even a little creepy. We enjoyed hearing the history of the house and of the famous cold murder case. We had wished the house had a sign stating that we could park in the parking lot, as we went past the house and ended up having to pay for parking at a meter.

Just left the 2 pm tour. Live locally and decided to do the tour for my birthday. My husband and I showed up early to purchase tickets and souvenirs. The lovely Robin was our shopkeeper/tour guide. She made the tour enjoyable and was very knowledgeable. She even let me play Mrs.Borden's dead body lol. Tour lasted an hour and was... More

My wife and I took the tour because we read previous good reviews. We were not disappointed! Our tour guide was Robin and she was great. The tour lasted right at an hour and was both entertaining and informative. I would definitely recommend this tour. By the way, we arrived about 45 minutes before the next tour but there were...

Stopped here on our way back to Pittsburgh from Salem MA. Was a little out of our way, but worth it. Tours are on the hour but since they were busy and had enough people they added a tour on the 1/2 hr. The guide was very informative and the house is beautiful. Take your pictures as you go thru...

I've been fascinated by the Lizzie Borden story forever. Read a lot, saw the Elizabeth Montgomery movie, and saw a play by the Delvina Theater Group. Even know someone who is a relative of Lizzie. Finally made the trip to Fall River. The man selling tickets gave us some background info and showed us interesting photos while we waited for... More

This was a fun attraction! The guide was very knowledgable about both the history and the paranormal part of the home. We really enjoyed the tour. You are allowed to take pics in the house and they provide you with additional information to visit the home Lizzy Borden moved to after the scandal and the cemetery. All very close by... More
