  • The house is beautifully preserved. Through the self-tour, you can get a sense of what life was like in the 1850's. Great for families with older kids, couples, and solo travelers. A wonderful way to ...  more »

  • I really like that you have the option of doing a self guided tour or come at a specified time to a group tour with a guide. It was a very interesting building to see. The man working there mentioned that they had many artifacts from this family that were not currently on display. I asked him specifically if there were any of the artifacts that I study in my line of work and the only answer I got was "honestly, I have no idea, but of you come back sometime we might have more stuff out". That's not very helpful.
  • This museum opens on Mondays! It shows the memorable history of the Irish immigrant in NYC. You are able to begin your journey with a guide book or join in a tour. All of the staffs are extremely helpful and hospitable.
  • a cool museum in the middle of manhattan, owned by the same family since it was built, furnished with all original stuff. a real step back in history.
  • I like the history. So, the house and its history are interesting. But exibition and house's conditions are depressing.
  • A preserved 19th century townhouse that's well worth visiting. There are friendly staff on hand to answer any questions you have.
