Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

A good overview of the architectural must sees of Columbus, IN. I suggest you take the tour in the AM and get a feel for things and then you can return on your own later in the day for a closer look.

“Great Tour and Wonderful People”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

This little city is a gem. There are so many great buildings and the tour is a wonderful way to see them all. The people at the Visitor's Center and the tour guide were very nice and helpful. We can't wait to return and see the Miller House.

“Don't miss the Miller House if you love modernist architecture!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

I'm the Director of the Grand Rapids Museum of Art and made a pilgrimage to Indianapolis to see friends and two other reasons: to experience the Indianapolis Museum of Art and see the Miller House in Columbus, Indiana. I had heard about Columbus in my art history class, and was thrilled to see some of the progressive buildings this forward-looking city has built. There is a helpful visitors center where you can buy maps and sign up for various tours. The Miller House is booked through the Indianapolis Museum of Art web site and you really have to book ahead. I was really impressed with the quality of the Docent leader (Steve) and the detail and thoughtfulness with which the Museum has designed the experience and protected this private landmark for the public to experience.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We recently were in Columbus, IN with our RVing group and had signed up for the 2 hr. Architecture Tour. It was worth every penny of the tour. Our guide, Nancy, did a wonderful job. Even though my husband or I are architecture "geeks", Nancy did a wonderful job of keeping us very interested.
