If you check the house website (Google), there is information on the tours. Basically, they are at 12, 1, 2 & 3 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for $17, $5 more if you want to take pictures, with a special "in-depth" tour on Thursday at 1:30. $25.00. The tour is SO worth it; the tour guides obviously love the house and provide lots of detailed information about each room and about the house's history. They will arrange other tour times by reservation.
