  • Wonderfully preserved piece of history about an incredible man who is little known by the general public. His contributions to developing modern science were enormously important.
  • This historical site is a real gem. The house is in very good condition and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The chemistry demonstration was very well done and fun for children and adults.
  • Excellent Docent. Gained an excellent insight into the life and times of Priestly.
  • An amazing original home and laboratory of an amazing man. The tour was well done and informative. Highly recommended.
  • A great American. Without his discovery, we would only breath air!
