“excellent stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I have toured this house many times over the past 20 years and always enjoy seeing the building and introducing out-of-towners to old Frederick history. The people taking care of the house and the tour change from time to time, but are always friendly and knowledgeable. You can't go wrong here. Please leave them a donation to help with upkeep!

“Architectural gem - don't miss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Anyone with an interest in architecture and local history will enjoy this tour. Our guide was an amazing font of knowledge about the German heritage of this beautiful stone house, built around 1758, and showed us many fascinating details of its original condition interior.

“take the friday night haunting tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Have lived within walking distance of this museum house for almost 2 decades, can't believe it took me so long to take the Friday night tour which is all about the history and hauntings of the place. Way cool!

“Interesting Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Small but worth a visit. You really get the feel for what it was like to live in the house years ago. I especially like the kitchen garden.
