The Benjamin Harrison home is located in downtown Indianapolis and like many downtown attractions parking is a major issue. I would strongly suggest that visitors check out this attractions website prior your visit as it has some very good information on WHERE NOT TO PARK. Finding parking during the week can be a major issue, very limited street parking is available near the home. The tour of the house is outstanding and well worth the time. The guides are very informative and offer you little known insight into the life of our 23rd President. The Benjamin Harrison Home is a historical treasure and is well worth a visit.

Gives you a real feeling for what upper class living in the latter part of the 19th century was like. Staff are very nice.
