Always fun to visit and try to put yourself in the early 20th century's way of life for an upper middle class family in a midwestern city. The furniture, the decor bring it to life and tho it's fun, I'm happy that I was born in the mid century!

It's too bad there is not enough interest for it to be open all the time. I hosted a tea there and we used the family china. It was great fun.

We see this house occasionally when we do the HH tour in the spring. It's a wonderfully preserved home, right down to the wallpaper. If you want to know what a real Victorian home looked like inside, this will give you an excellent glimpse into the past.

Your choice of dates won't fit when I've been there. I've probably been to the Voight House four times and I would go back in a heartbeat! I've been with Girl Scouts, a high school art class, and during the Heritage Hill Home Tour. It is absolutely beautiful and so well preserved! The docents are extremely knowledgeable. A must if...

We used to tour Voigt House every few years. It was always such a fun time hearing about how this family lived and seeing the different artifacts. Always very special. What a pity it is closed! While I marked the earliest available date for visiting Voigt House, it's been several years since we've had the chance to tour it. When... More

Enjoyed a wonderful program facilitated by the staff. Everyone I spoke with was very well versed in the history of the community, the home and it's occupants and excited about sharing their interests. Not to be missed.

I went on a guided tour, back when they were giving tours, a few years later I went to take some visiting relatives and they were no longer giving tours. A beautiful home, nicely decorated. If they start giving tours again I would recommend going.

Here is a recent letter I wrote to the Museum: I have two young girls who are absolutely fascinated with Victorian era clothing and fashion. I was of course disappointed that the afternoon of fashion and tea was sold out this Saturday. I was more disappointed to hear that the event is booked out through May. I am very upset... More

The Voigt House Victorian Museum is a wonderful place to visit at Christmas time. They have the house specially decorated for the holiday time, and it is such a pretty time to visit. You get a guided tour by a volunteer from the Grand Rapids area who always fills you in on the events and secrets of this great family... More
