  • If you love old mansions, this one is a must see! Woodwork throughout house is absolutely fantastic. Artistic talent that would be hard to recreate. Historical content in house about steamboat industry worth the visit.
  • The Howard is a rare Victorian mansion that still houses many of the original furnishings. It Is a worthy house museum, not only a repository of steamboat memorabilia and technology.
  • Went as a child on field trips, went back as an adult. Wonderful little museum if you're into history, you'll enjoy this place. I assure you. Lots to read and see.
  • Lots of interesting history to discover and beautiful antiques.
  • Neat little museum, very nice house with most of the original furnishings. All visits are guided, but $5 for students and kids and $7 for adults, and around a 1.5 hour tour it seems like a very reasonable charge. Better yet, it seems that most visitors go with a personal tour guide not in a group. This is a good way to spend a couple hours, and I would recommend at least doing it once just to check it out.
