I was two blocks away working at the Travelers building, so I had to stop. It was interesting and the items sold in the store were very humorous. When in Fall River, MA, stop by the gift shop at least. They also had a Bed and Breakfast which we did not tour.

My 12 year-old son and I had an amazing time on our tour. Our tour guide Robin was very informative and entertaining. My son was especially excited when she picked him to be the "dead body " of Mrs. Borden. We highly recommend it.

We arrived for the first tour on a Wednesday during school vacation. We were the only ones that had arrived. Our tour was jam packed with information. Our guide was excellent taking time to explain everything in a way that my 8 year old could understand! This tour was far more than I expected. I need to plan another trip... More

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!
