A fun place to visit. The house is decorated as it was in the time of the Bush family residence. The staff on hand are very helpful and informative. While there, check out the grounds. You may even come across a wedding in the garden. In fact, my oldest daughter was married in that very place.

For me, being an adult, this place had many things I could equate to my Grandparents and beyond. For children under the age of 12, I feel the era is lost on them. I watched as folks filed through with smaller children reminding them many times, "not to touch and lower your voices". I could see they were not having... More

Admission was reasonable for a museum wonderful interesting items on display. Museum was easy to go to once you are able to navigate the city streets everything is in reasonable distance of each other.

I love walking the grounds of Bush Park, so full of majestic trees and filled with lively squirrels. The museum is at the entrance of the park at one end. It holds alot of art from many artists and most of the displays are unique. Most of the art is for sale and at a good price. I always make... More

The Bush House Museum is an authentically maintained home that reflects the innovations of the day and of its owner Asahel Bush, one of Salem's leading entrepreneurs. The house has been beautifully maintained and contain items that belonged to the Bush family. Surrounding the home are rose gardens and paths to walk through Bush Pasture Park. A lovely outing for...

I did the tour with my girlfriend last August. The house was beautiful, the tour informative, and the rose garden absolutely delightful. Great experience.

The Bush House Museum is a nice little historic house that offers those who visit a look into the history of the Bush Family and the Park. The best part of Museum, in my mind is the Bush Barn Art Center. There are three galleries in the behind the house that house rotating exhibits. It is home to the Salem... More

This 11,000 sq ft home is absolutely lovely. Because the home was occupied by just one family, the home and contents are in amazing condition. The docent was knowledgeable and passionate about the property. We will visit again in June to admire the extensive rose garden.
