  • We loved the Seelye mansion & the Eisenhower Museum. Both are a “Must see” when in Abilene, Kansas. We especially enjoyed the tour guides Terry & Michael at the Seelye mansion.

  • I have been to many museum tours but never to mansions or house tours. Wow! ! So glad we had the opportunity to tour this lovely mansion. We had plans to go to another museum that day, but...

  • A wonderful experience! 5 stars! Not only is this a stunningly beautiful house, it is not really a museum but is a tour of someone's actual house. The architect is the same one who designed the State Capitol and Frank Lloyd Wright had some input into interior design after the house was built. On top of that, this house was wired by Edison and featured some very new innovations of the St. Louis World's Fair at the turn of the century. This was well worth a visit.
  • A strikingly beautiful mansion. The guide is very knowledgeable about each part of the home and property. We were able to listen to an Edison cylinder on an old phonograph...which was so special. The guide also played the Steinway piano and the organ...which was very enjoyable. We also were able to bowl in their bowling alley...so cool!
  • The passion behind the tour was incredible. The house was beautiful and very well kept, love this little gem and can't wait to see it during Christmas! I highly recommend 10/10 so much history with this home and the locals.
  • Guide was very knowledgeable. Made me feel like I was living in that time. A great part of history
  • If you like local and Kansas history, this is a great stop. The hosts are great at telling the story.
