This is a return visit after nine years, and it's still as beautiful. The fireplaces are exquisite and the architecture is very grand. However, there isn't as much of original pieces as I had hoped, but a lot of the decor is of the time...More

The Sioux Falls and Petrigrew family history side was very interesting for history buffs. The house tour is the real gem. The woodwork, wallpaper, piano and furniture was enthralling and breathtaking. This is free but donations are welcomed. We spent maybe 1hr and 45 minutes...More

To see the tour of the house was interesting. And to see some of the other exhibits was nice, but do miss the amount of exhibits that Pettigrew himself had in the house.

Reasonable entry fee and well-maintained. The guide was knowledgeable and took time with us. Part of an area of larger and older homes in the Cathedral area. Close to downtown and historic attractions there.

There is a lot of history of the area here. The tour was interesting and somewhat upsetting with the way Pettigrew took advantage of his power to take what he wanted. But that is history and it was still interesting.

Service was great. We arrived too early for a tour but were allowed to view detailed exhibits upstairs. We requested an abbreviated tour and our guide was very accommodating. So glad we stopped and learned more about Sioux Falls.

The house is lovely and there are a lot of pieces of furniture that have been recovered that belonged to the Pettigrew's when they lived in the home. Mr. Pettigrew, and his bother, were avid collectors of many things around the world. There is a...More

This house was owned by Mr. and Mrs. Pettigrew who were the real developers of Sioux Falls. The museum is free and the guided tour is really terrific. You can go in all the rooms of the house except the 3rd floor maid/cook quarters. I...More
