  • Amazing house and displays. Tour guides are very knowledgeable of the Seward's and the history surrounding them. Learned a lot of things I never knew.
  • The tour combined Seward's political career and how his life in the house was related.
  • Really interesting, the tour takes you through the whole House, not a lot of time to meander and browse on your own.
  • Great House Museum and great staff. All furnishings are original--which is unusual nowadays
  • Very enjoyable visiting this place and seeing especially all the memorabilia that Seward collected from other heads of State. Lots of artifacts and beautiful paintings in here, including Lincoln signatures and portraits. I only ding them one star because it would be nice to take pictures inside of the home to share it with others.
