    I highly recommend this tour. You need a good 1-2 hours to enjoy both houses. Our 6 year old son did well on the 1st house but didn't last for the 2nd one. I had to take a break with him and my wife finished the second house. It's very educational and gives you a prespective of how the rich lived at the turn of the century. The architecture (Queen Anne) is amazing and definitely worth seeing if you're in the area. There are historical homes on the same street that are private, but you can take a nice walk and observe from the outside.
