Went to President Harrison's gravesite, then visited his home. Very authentic walk back into time. Kitchen had a hand pump in the kitchen sink. Very cool office/ library where he worked at home. Really enjoyed the visit.

A great tour guide and a great sense of the intellectualism of this president. Great artifacts and the tour of this Victorian house takes you back into time. Worth the tour especially history buffs.

This a well maintained home of the former president. Volunteer docents do a great job and are very knowledgeable.

This was our 9th tour of a presidential house. Our guide was warm and not at all hurried--took all questions. The tour was a little over an hour. There is a fair amount in this house for lovers of fabrics and fashions--more so than many presidential sites. There is also a fair amount of 2d and 3D art, as Mrs.... More

Visited the home of Benjamin Harrison. Easy to find right off the highway. Great Victorian house with lots of history behind it. The tour guide was excellent. Learned a lot about the Harrisons. The tour took an hour and a half but it seemed like twenty minutes because it was so interesting. I would recommend it to all.

This is a wonderful tour for history buffs. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered our questions in detail. I really enjoyed the tour. It was a little long for my children, but the docent made sure to talk to them and engage them in the conversation. Benjamin Harrison isn't one of those presidents that stood out in my... More

We arrived quite early, just a 10 minutes after opening. Jim was our tour guide. 3 buses of students arrived before us. So pretty much had private tour with Jim. Totally awsome experience for us. The history, the furnitures and others were like throwing u back to the past where the great Benjamin Harrison was alive. Jim was the great... More

My kids and I loved touring this site! Our guide, Gary, was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to - we learned a great deal about President Harrison that we didn't know prior to our tour. The home is gorgeous, and there are so many interesting features that it was hard to take it all in at once. I highly... More

Our visit today was great. Our tour guide Jan Longest was a wealth of information both concerning the house itself and the Harrisons. Enjoyed so much the many original furnishings in the home. Have a greater appreciation for former President Benjamin Harrison and his contribution to our great country. Glad we took the tour.

Beautifully maintained Italianate home in the Old Northside Historic District of Indianapolis. Many of the original furnishings are still in the home. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Harrison family and the furnishings of the home. The tour takes you on three floors including the top floor, which you seldom are allowed to see on tours. The grounds are... More
