It is nice to see how well they have preserved and restored this beautiful home fo a once prominent Evansville family. it appears a lot of the furnishings are original and the workmanship that went into building this home is magnificent.

Extraordinary! I went twice during the Victorian Christmas season (once during normal tour hours and once for the "Candle Light Tours" event). The guide was very knowledgeable on the history of the family and on the architecture/craftsmanship of the house. I loved how the decorations...More

We loved our tour of the home. It's beautiful and definitely a "must-see" in Evansville. Our tour guide was very likeable, as well. The video they have you watch at the beginning is pretty dreadful, though. It's old, so the audio and video is awful....More

The black walnut doors in this house are absolutely beautiful as well as many of the fireplace finishing. Great place to spend a couple of hours.

I have toured many 19th century homes throughout the US. The Reitz home museum is among the finest examples of a Victorian/Edwardian era home I have been in. Many of the home's original furnishings are in the rooms, and the original colors and textiles have...More

Our tour guide was nice, but a bit quiet and uninformed on some things that we would have thought would be known as part of the tour. The home itself was nicely restored and was worth seeing for the $7.50 per adult and $1.50 per...More

7.50 for adults. Not sure about children. Group rates available. Not sure about handicap accessible. I think there is a ramp around back. Website should tell you what you need to know.
