We had an excellent tour guide and learned a lot. Cool things to look at and not far from the Lemp Mansion.

The history behind this mansion and all who lived in it was amazing. Each room throughout the mansion appeared very well preserved. The furniture, kids room with the dollhouse in it, the evening gown that is displayed in the hallway on display- the location in the back where the horse buggies ate held-- just too much to list! :-) Great...

My wife & I took the Mansion tour on a mid-summer afternoon, and we now wish we had visited much sooner. Very friendly staff greeted us warmly & genuinely. We toured with a small group of adults, but the I believe the tour would be equally appreciated by children of grade school age & above. The house was built in... More

Frankly, we had some time to kill before we went to the brewery, and this was on our way. It's interesting, but not incredible.

I've been to many historical homes and buildings, but the tour for this one was outstanding. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and packed in a huge amount of information, but he did it in an interesting way. The house has some unusual items that are not normally seen, and the tour included information related to early St. Louis.

This is a fascinating place that dates back to St. Louis beginnings. The staff and lots of volunteers were there the day I visited and they were super helpful. They have a passion for history and were happy to tell our group all about the people who have lived in the mansion over the years. They have some interesting events... More

We had previously visited this historic home, but were back in the area and decided to re-visit to take a look at the Christmas decorations in the house. A good decision! This home is truly a hidden gem, as mentioned by previous reviewers. It's a shame it seems to attract so few visitors. We were the only visitors for a... More

The absolute best guided tour EVER. Myself along with my 9 & 10 year old were enamored the entire time the docent was speaking. Countless times we looked at each other in amazement at what we were learning. (Our jaws dropped hearing how women of the day took small doses of arsenic to keep their skin color as white as...

Our tour of the Chatillion-Demeril house museum lasted about 1.5 hours and was very enjoyable. The house is well restored and furnished appropriate to the period. Our tour guide was extremely well informed and gave us a wonderful tour covering the history of the house, the neighborhood and the families that owned it. If you are in St. Louis and... More

What a hidden treasure. This is the a wonderful, inexpensive, and historically fascinating home and tour. The docents are amazing and so informative---you get way more than you pay for on this tour. Amazing family with amazing history. Just seeing the St. Louis World's Fair exhibit alone is worth the ticket price and then some. Next to the Lemp Mansion... More
