The Reitz is very nicely restored and an interesting addition to our visits of many different historic homes. It has some original furnishings plus rooms restored to original owner condition. However, the tour itself was awkward; I would have rather meandered through on my own....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

Beautifully restored museum home with 1890s decor. Our guide knew the rooms, objects, and family story backwards and forwards. Fascinating to imagine Evansville as a place where elegant families collected European treasures and had a sizable staff to look after them.

Well maintained house with an interesting history. The interior has a definite Moorish flavor as well as some nicely designed stained glass. Worth the stop.

We really enjoyed touring this home. Our guide was well informed, and we especially liked that there were plenty of pictures of the original family members and many of their possessions and furniture are still in the house. It was easy to imagine what life...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.
