“Neat fun exhibit”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Really neat that someone took this house and memorialized the era. A fun little way to spend a couple of hours on a weekend afternoon and worth visiting.

“A Trip Back in Time”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The 1950's All-Electric House is a great taste of what the height of home fashion was over 5 decades ago. I highly recommend visiting the home during the Holiday season as it would be a real shame to miss the psychedelic Christmas Tree in the living room. Brought my mother back to her childhood - she couldn't have enjoyed it more!
Don't forget to check out the museum attached which has a fantastic hands-on section for children (perfect for kids 3-9). All around, a fun filled afternoon for the family.

“Better than expected!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This tour is a great value!! I liked seeing and hearing about the different "features" of the house (like the fake skylight...or the waist-high outlets). Very interesting & low cost! Definitely recommend it if you're in the area!

“Blast From The Past”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

If you love all things retro, this is a must see.  For a very small fee, a tour guide takes you through a time capsule show house that GE had built as a "home of the future," with gadgets all over the house. Afterwards, there is a free museum you can visit to learn about the history of local Native American tribes, history of the area, and an interactive play area for kids to make puppet shows, design fashions, and play doctor.

“My childhood! Only better!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I went for the Christmas display. The house was fun (If a little sparse) with the alminum tree and vintage toys. Well worth the visit.
