I went on the tour as a favor for my friend who is very "into" Lizzie Borden. Honestly, other than the rhyme "Lizzie Borden took an axe...." I knew nothing at all. Our tour guide, Nick, changed all that. It was a fascinating, informative, fun tour and Nick was able to answer every question. The tour was about an hour... More

My son is into the paranormal, history and museums, so this was a no brainer for us. We were talking to our tour guide Sue, prior to our tour and my son shared his interest in the paranormal. Sue was awesome - she pretty much tailored the tour with consideration to his interests and his age (10) as we were... More

Being a distant relative of the Bordens, this was a must stop on our road trip. And it was worth it. The house was amazing. the Guide was knowledgeable.

The tour was fascinating! Our tour guide shared a lot of information about the history of the family, the murders, the subsequent trial, and the many paranormal encounters people have described over the years.

Of course after RI Comic-con, most museums were closed on Monday's. After making a trip to Newport to see the Breakers, we decided on a scenic drive to Fall River Massachusetts to visit the Lizzie Borden House. We bought tickets at the gift shop (a barn that was converted to a gift shop and upstairs apartment) and guided through the... More

I went with a good friend on a Thursday (day trip). We were the only 2 for this tour. It was great. I loved the Lizzie Borden story. The house was full of antiques and other interesting artifacts. Plenty of family pictures. Our guide was knowledgeable and polite. You can stay here overnight but the prices are a little steep.

We enjoyed our tour of the Lizzie Borden House. It's a short and informative tour of the house, the Bordens and Lizzie's trial. Be sure to show your AAA card for a tour discount.

We loved the tour, it was vary informative and the tour guide Rick left nothing out. While on the tour we experienced some possible paranormal activity. We were the only other people in the house and heard door knobs turning and felt like we were being watched. I think that this is vary tame in comparison to other experiences but... More

It's worth reading one of the many Lizzie Borden books before visiting to get a solid background understanding because a lot of the history is not covered in the rather rushed tour. But the guide was very factual. OUr tour group was quite large and the house quite small inside so I would suggest maybe leaving it until quite close... More
