This was an unexpected highlight of a brief trip to Denver. One of a core of historical sites in the downtown area, the house is exceptional in it's collection of 90% of furniture and artifacts from the original families. The guided tour provided information about the house and the families who lived there in the context of the fledgling state... More

Visitors can upon a small admission price complete a guided tour of this historical house. The tour was informative and gave an insight into the early history and the 1920s era of the house. The family had donated back many of their family treasures and heirlooms, so that it is decorated in that era. Our guide was very knowledgeable and... More

When visiting Denver, plan to visit three Victorian mansions that were inhabited by families that played important roles in the history of the city and Colorado. One is the Grant-Humphreys mansion. Another is the home of Titanic survivor Molly Brown. The other is the Byers-Evans House at 1310 Bannock Street, behind the Denver Art Museum. The Byers-Evans house was built... More

Everything inside the house is original to it. You can only visit by taking a tour, but you do get to see the entire house. It is located down the street from the Denver Art Museum and worth a visit.

This is an amazing journey through a historic Denver. Through out the house there are various things to see and show the past. Anyone who wants to take a trip through the history of Denver should visit here.

The Byers-Evans House, adjacent to the Denver Art Museum, should be on the top of your "To Do" list when visiting Denver. The Byers and Evans Families were both instrumental in developing many of Denver's businesses, organizations and cultural institutions from the 1850's to the 1940's. The Evans Family, who occupied this rambling house for most of the 20th century,... More

You have to take a tour to see the house. The house and furnishings were appealing, especially if the era intersts you. Tour guide was not as engaging and knowledgeable as he could have been, but tour was fine. Lasts about 45 minutes.

A fabulous tour.....so authentic! It is rare to visit a house of this vintage and view all the original furnishings! We had a tour for four of us and enjoyed the history of this family that played a large part in the growth of Denver. This is a must visit for anyone interested in the development and history of Denver.... More

The tour was a little boring due to our guide, Dominque. He was not very savvy about the history. The tea was very mediocre. The food was ok, would have been better with A warm soup instead of fruit.

I love learning about how people used to live. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable. Beware, the day I was there it was quite hot and there is no air conditioning. There are also no photos allowed inside the house.
