  • We had stopped here years ago before the visitors center was built. The house is still in its original location, and the nearby gardens are nice. The center is worth going in to take a look around.  more »

  • Well worth the trip. You can't actually go in the house but that is fine since the exterior is what is famous. Nice welcome center adjacent to it. They have a great set up that provides easy on and off costumes, plus pitch forks, so you can stand in front of the house to recreate the iconic painting. Staff will take your picture or you can take your own.. Nice museum and gift shop too.
  • So fun! The museum was very informative and the costumes that you can put pin to take pictures in are a hoot. The people working the counter were super nice and helped us get dressed and then took pictures for us too. This is a hidden gem!
  • You'll find this gem in the middle of a small town off the beaten path.. but not too far. They even have the "garb" in different sizes and will take your picture in front of the house. Very friendly and informative employees. And it's FREE !
  • Staff was so friendly. They help you into the costumes and take your pic for free. Free museum was great as well.
  • We got there after hours. But the building and statues are in great shape!
