This was a last minute add-on for our weekend stay in Sandusky. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, essentially we had a one hour personal guided tour through the 4 story Limestone Mansion! There is nice variety there, with a lot of period pieces...More

This beautiful old mansion, home to a state representative who was very involved with Abolition of Slavery, is full of period rooms replete with Sandusky area history. It is a more traditional Victorian museum, not a kid-friendly, interactive, modern display museum. One large upstairs room...More

This house is well maintained and a short walk from the Sandusky Library. Docents were very knowledgable. Don't miss the upstairs with special exhibits.

This museum seemed to be just rooms filled with various antiques from many different eras rather than displaying the house as it had been in the time period that it was built and lived in. It was still interesting as we love history, but I...More
