About
Since opening on February 6, 1943, the Campbell House Museum has served the greater St. Louis area as one of America's premier historic property museums. The Museum not only preserves the Campbell's house, but also their collection of original furniture, fixtures, paintings, objects and thousands of pages of family documents. Included in these documents is a unique album of 60 photographs of the interior of the house taken in about 1885. In 2005 the Museum completed a meticulous five-year restoration that returned the building to its opulent 1880s appearance, when the house was one of the centers of St. Louis society.

Very enlightening tour of this beautiful and opulent Victorian era home. Our guide Christa is a wealth of information. She is obviously devoted to the Campbell House Museum and is eager to impart the history of the house and the Campbell family. I was impressed by the restoration of the original furnishings and artwork- that’s dedication. This house is a gem.

Loved the feeling of being in the actual house with the furnishings intact. It really took you back in time! You could see how the upper class lived and what it was like in so many ways. It went directly from a house to a museum, which is unique but also very special. You don’t have to be interested in furniture or even history - there really is something for everyone to enjoy. $10pp at end of tour. Lasted a little over an hour.

We took advantage of the free day to visit the Campbell House and so glad we did. Our tour guide was excellent and answered all of our questions. The orginial furniture and art work was an added bonus as many places today do not have the orginial items. Parking is limited but there is plently of parking on the near by streets. I will gladly pay the admission fee next time I visit as it is well worth the $8 they charge. The history of the family is very interesting. So, if you want to see how the rich lived in St. Louis go see the Campbell House.

We visit the Campbell House every couple of years. There is so much detail to see that it's interesting time after time. It really is a hidden treasure. Very few places of this era you can visit where it's 90% original. The furniture was in the house (even positioned correctly base on old photographs) and it's pretty much the same as if you walked in the door in the 1800s.

The Campbell House is utterly unique. If you are a fan of house museums, you may realize it iis important for the house to have a piece of two from the family that lived there. The rest of it is "period", picked because it could have been there.

Here 99% of the stuff in the stuff is actually from the family.

Plus, amazing docents.

This is a unique gem. The outside doesn't look very impressive from the street, but man it packs a visual punch! This was the first house built in this ritzy area in the mid-19th Century, pre-Civil War, and the only house standing today. It has most of the original furnishings and is very well restored/maintained. The docent was extremely knowledgeable about the family, St. Louis history, and the artifacts themselves. There is free parking on site and a small gift shop where you pay on your way out. I would recommend going if you are in the St. Louis downtown area. The tour lasts about an hour and it is only $10

This as the absolute highlight of my week in STL! Guide Dennis was knowledgeable, personable and engaging and I was agog at the amount of original artifacts in the house. The restoration of walls, woodwork & furnishings was also quite impressive. And to top it all off, they are accessible and have an adorable museum shop! What’s not to love?

Found this walking was glad that I stopped. The exterior is impressive and well kept. The interior was a WOW!. Hardly wanted to breathe for fear of disturbing the sense of calm and dignity. Feels like a trip back in time.

This was a personally guided tour through an historic mansion like many others that I have been to. However there are a few things that make this house unique. 1. The furnishings are all original. 2. There are photos of the interior so they know what it looked like inn the Nineteenth Century. The tour is 95% accessible by wheel chair. Allow 90 minutes.

Remarkably preserved home showcases the Victorian era in America. We had a private tour with a great guide who really knew the history of the home. There's a lot to look at in each room. If you're a fan of Victorian period tv shows, this is a must see in St. Louis.
