“What a gem!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Jenna gave a very good tour of the home. She has a lot of information to impart. Very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our visit. It is free, but they have a donation box and we certainly gave a donation after the wonderful experience!

“Get a little more color on Austin”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Can't beat a free museum with enthusiastic docents. Was only there 40 mins, but felt like I knew O Henry and early Austin much better after this.
