  • The house is magnificent and the people charged with its care go beyond knowledge to true understanding of the home, the Harrison Family, and the sentiment of the time. Themed tours throughout the year are excellent! They are approximately one hour and under $20. Highly recommended The Civil War dinner is pricey for an event so it is best to consider it a fund raiser. "Benjamin Harrison" and his "Aide de Camp" provide interesting information while prepared questions for the guests help stir lively conversation. Recommended
  • It was a nice mansion. The tour was fairly quick, but about the right amount of time. The tour guide was new and didn't have a lot of info outside of what she had been taught. If you asked questions she usually didn't have the answer, but that takes time. They did a nice job of staging the house, and there was a lot of good information.
  • Historical Mansion of U.S. Pres. Benjamin Harrison.....many Docents in period costume, all very knowledgeable about the property. Visitors center and bookstore in former carriage house. Local garden clubs restoring the original heritage gardens. Mr. Hyde, skilled at taking care of visitors and school groups ! Fri. Oct. 27 , 2017..they hosted the IN. STATE DAR...for the placement of an official marker for..MRS. CAROLINE SCOTT, HARRISON..a force in her own right...an excellent painter, excelling in painting orchids and birds on ceramic plates.
  • I was a previous garden volunteer at this house in the rose garden. I really enjoyed the Croquet Roquet event and signed up for a future event! 🎟️🎫🎫 It was an opportunity to meet some great people who were volunteers, college students and professionals. They have a parking lot for their volunteers and off-street parking for museum visitors. Handicap Access: The main building and a separate building with public restrooms both have handicap access. Elevator assistance is available with advance notice in the two-story museum.
  • Fascinating history and all authentic. So pleased we came to visit. Very friendly volunteers too.

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
