  • Wonderful living exhibit. His actual home. Well informed docents to guide you through the home. Also interactive audio
  • Special Thanks to the volunteers who graciously give of themselves to inform the visitors of the details of dr.bobs family and aa life. Awesome experience and felt right at home. As the sign indicates upon entering. Loved sitting in the kitchen drinking a coffee and eating cookies. It was warm and inviting. Sense of peace and calmness.
  • What an AMAZING experience. It's strange that I live so close to where it all started and I haven't visited until founders day when it's packed full. I got goosebumps walking through this house, just thinking about all the things that happened in that house that helped AA continue to be the success it is today. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and professional. I got to do the third step prayer upstairs and it was such a spiritual experience. I will definitely be returning sometime in the near future to be able to take my time through the house. They've got a gift shop that you can get all sorts of neat things, my only recommendation would be for them to expand the gift shop to offer a wider variety of things. If you ever have the chance to check it out I HIGHLY recommend it.
  • “Dr Bob” Friends of Bill W must visit Dr Bob's home. GPS brought us right to the home. Volunteers took us thru the rooms giving an excellent presentation. There is a gift shop too.
  • Historical landmark for alcoholics anonymous. AA Cofounder Dr Bob Smith.
