It is small, but it is quite worth the visit. Docents give an excellent outline of historical events and lifestyles. The gift shop is quaint and might provide an unusual gift item for you.

Everything Timothy B has written here is a lie . Edna Norman was not his Aunt nor would she have ever claimed him as farmily, as far as living there he has only ever been there 5 or 6 times over a period of about 5 years or so and the piano story is just something else he has made... More

The home is well maintained and attractively furnished in period pieces. And the docents are both friendly and helpful. The surrounding area is lovely with several cobblestone streets. After your visit to this museum, be sure to drive/walk a few blocks to The Pagoda gardens (265 W. Tazwell St) and enjoy the oriental plantings and koi pond. And stop for... More

This is a lovely house and there are so many planned events that are fun. My granddaughters and I love to go there and I have brought most of my family and friends also. Keep up the good work.
