“A Favorite Since I was Young!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I have been twice, once as a child and once as an adult, both times I enjoyed learing the history of Betsy Ross and visualizing how she must have lived.

“A little bit of a let down....”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Well, it's only a let down if you have high expectations for this.... it's nothing spectacular... but if you happen to be in the city, or live in or near the city, it's worth a drop-by. Not the kind of place you'll need to spend a lot of time, and not the kind of place you'll feel you need to go to year after year.... trust me.... go, and you'll see what I mean....

“Expensive!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Very expensive for a myth of American History! I think they wanted $28 for a family of six to visit. If it is on your list, you can spread out the cost by getting that Liberty Pass.

“great class trip”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

i don't know anyone who hasn't visited which is odd bc usually natives normally avoid tourist type places but this is just too important to our history to miss. It's a quick stop and close to other historical sites but definitely worth it.

“Great for Kids”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Visited the Besty Ross House with out of town guests with two small children. Very child friendly, including a "live" Betsy who speaks to the children, asks & answers questions about her life. A bit pricey, but worth it.
