We have all sang the song about Lizzie Borden. This house walks you through the experience. Spooky! I understand they have overnight stays? Not for the faint of heart

My husband and I arrived just before noon last Friday in time for the first tour of the day. There was only one other couple with us, so it almost felt like we got a private tour! Our tour guide, Danielle, was friendly and easy to listen to as she introduced us to each room of the house and described... More

We got there just in time for the first tour on a Saturday morning in mid-January and were the only ones; that worked out just fine. Our guide, Danielle, was poised, knowledgeable, pleasant, and a professional in every sense of the word. She covered the reams of information leaving us with very few questions -- a superb job we thought.... More

As a "serious" historian, I generally avoid sites that promise only to send up the sensational and macabre (see almost any place in Salem, Massachusetts), but with the relatively recent publication of a new book by the terrific folks at the Fall River Historical Society that seeks to place Lizzie Borden in the context of her Gilded Age world, we...

Very interesting and must see. I really enjoyed the tour. Fact or fiction,,,truth or folklore. In any case it is a fun visit but expensive.

We had an awesome time. I am a huge chicken when it comes to this stuff! I loved the way we were left alone at night to explore and get a true experience. There were some ghost hunters staying there the same night and they got something on their EVP. Highly recommend staying here! The staff was great!

We toured this museum in January, and we were well entertained. I had read some bad reviews, but our experience was very positive. The house definitely has a "feel" to it, I developed sudden nausea in the attic that I could not explain, it went away once I left that floor. Weird. The tour guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. We... More

Went here with my husband and two kids ages 10 and 13 to learn more about the incident that happened back in 1892 and enjoyed every moment. Our tour guide Micah (sp?) was amazing! She told us the story as it had unfolded as we took our time going from room to room. She explained things so well and kept... More

Great guide - very knowledgeable and friendly. Doesn't try to convince you if she did it or not, but let's you make your own assumption based on facts. Blood stains still on the floor! If you like creepy historical stuff this is a must do. Very interesting. Beautiful town as well.

The museum was nice and the guide had a lot on knowledge on the story of what might or might not have happened. It was a little pricy for a tour.
