  • Free mini tour on the 4th of July. Pleasant employees (maybe volunteers) in the terrible heat and this house is a wonder to see. The Harrison's were there (actors) in full character. Learned a lot about our country's history and our Presidents. I'm going back for a full tour.
  • Our family had a great visit to the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site. Our volunteer tour guide, Mike was not only knowledgeable but incredibly personable. He answered questions we had to the best of his ability and interacted well with our six year old. The tour itself was incredible. Unlike many others of its type around the country, you are able to go into each room and at times, delicately touch items. You truly get to immerse yourself in the lifestyle. If you have small children, make sure they are well prepared to be handsoff or don't bring them. The price of admission is fare as the property is very well kept. There is a modern and clean restroom house on the property for multiple people.
  • If you're a history buff or just need something to do while in Indy, visit the Benjamin Harrison home! I love architecture and you will fall in love with house! It has been restored perfectly and the tours are always full of great info and facts! Be careful of the back stairs...they are very steep!
  • They are really friendly and informative. Easily accessible for disabled.
  • Awesome place to visit, looking forward to going back to see the rest of the house

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.
