This is our 6th presidential home this year and because of our fantastic tour guide and the house itself; it's our favorite. We spent so much time there and the staff is so knowledgeable. You will learn so much and be really happy you went. Benjamin Harrison's home is definitely a must see in Indianapolis!

A beautiful walk through home of the centennial president (to George Washington). Plenty to see, and we had a fantastic docent that led us through the home. Lot's of period piece and personal items of the president including his desk, dinnerware, personal home gym products and the bed he died in. You only need about an hour for this -... More

I have been to several presidential houses and this was one of my favorites. The guides knew all sorts of interesting information and made the tour fun. You can take in the whole house in about an hour but it's definitely worth a stop if you are into history at all.

We always search out presidential homes on our road trips. The tour of this Harrison home was definitely worth the stop. We were in awe of our guide, Jan. She was probably the most knowledgeable guide we have ever had in a presidential home. Don't hesitate to stop by this home when traveling through Indianapolis.

The tour of the house was made especially interesting by the tour guide, who was very knowledgeable of the house and the former president. The house was a look into life at that time.

While in Indianapolis this is definitely a place to visit, especially if you are interested in Presidential history. The docents were knowledgeable and the tour took you on three floors of the house. The covered all aspects of Harrison's life, including information about his wife Caroline, who was quite accomplished. The third floor ballroom is set up with Harrison family... More

This was one of the best tours we have ever experienced. The guide was very knowledgeable. The home contains original furniture. Did not know much about President Harrison prior to the tour. He was an extraordinary man and very interesting family. Well worth your time.

I was here with a senior group. We had a guide - split group up in 10 people each. The guide was very knowledgable. It was interesting to see items in the house - some being belongings of the Harrison family including photos & other things of that period of time. Allow about 1 1/2 hours if you have a... More

This IS a lovely home. And that alone makes it worth the stop in downtown Indianapolis. Extremely well maintained, with most of the furnishings having actually belonged to President Harrison and his wife Caroline. It is hoped you will be allowed a tour of the second and third floors. One never knows, but they too, are exquisite, with the third... More

Very much worth the time & money. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Harrison, his life experiences & his family. The home is very well maintained & true to the period in which he lived. Allow 1-2 hours for the tour, depending on how many are in your group. There are stairs you must navigate to enter the house... More
