The volunteer staff is wonderful. Arrived while they were setting up for a wedding yet they stopped to lead us through a thorough and entertaining tour of the home. The home spans two architectural styles and several families. It is too bad that the freeway was cut right behind this area as this home and the house next door, the... More

Our tour guide was really good, giving detailed information on the history of the house, including the families that lived there. I liked that part of the house was restored to it's original state before the fancier Victorian addition. There are lots of unique touches throughout the house. I really enjoyed this tour.

The architecture of home is OK. It has some interesting artifacts from the family inside and a nice collection of St Louis world fair in attic. The docent (sorry I forgot his name) was amazing and packed a lot of history & knowledge of the family and area into the hour tour. Well worth the $8 tour. Also located next... More

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
