“Well organized and pleasant tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Gives you a real feeling for what upper class living in the latter part of the 19th century was like. Staff are very nice.

Well worth going to if you like history & old homes. This is a great place to visit. Good for the young if well behaved.

“Great Christmas time viewing of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Character actors meet you at the door during the holiday season. The tree is doecorated with time period decorations, and the fine china is on the table. You get to see the whole house working like it did when the President lived there.

“Christmas at Pres. Benjamin Harrison Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Took my 85 yr. old father to the President Benjamin Harrison Home on 12/22/12. The entire house was decorated for Christmas in the Victorian style and looked amazing. Our guide was very informative and did not rush us through the tour. It was nice to see my father enjoy himself and also comment about items that he saw that brought back fond memories of his childhood. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
