  • We loved the one hour tour of the house. Worth the time to see this old place. The people who work here love their job. Not often you see older homes restored like this.  more »
  • My husband and I spent time here as part of a half day in downtown Phoenix and were very pleased. We are usually museum people but neither the science center nor natural history museum seemed to have ...  more »
  • The admission is reasonable and parking is only $1. The guided tour is about 45 minutes. I got the impression self guided tours were not permitted.  more »

  • This museum is pretty interesting, but probably more-so for the architect-minded. Our participation and enjoyment was dampened by a friend's inability to see the upstairs area due to physical constraints. Come as long as you can climb stairs.
  • Excellent and interesting. I highly recommend a visit here.
  • Came for the free museum day and even though it was crowded it was well worth it. Lots of activities, history and a really good sight and is historical significant.
  • Came here when I was hanging out downtown and I've been here a couple times before as a kid. I'm interested in Victorian lifestyle and homes. I marvel at the workmanship of the house and the time it took to restore parts of this house. Every time I go back I learn something new about the house or history of the residents of the house. My favorite part is the stair case because the workmanship just keeps me in wonder. If you have an hour downtown, check this place out, I did it before my friend had to fly out of Sky Harbor. It's a landmark of Phoenix, and it gives you a sense of how far Phoenix has come to develop from more than a century ago
  • Went in yesterday wanting more information on the tour of the house but when we walked in to the office the lady was on the phone and not once did she pause her conversation to greet us or simply let us know she would be right with us. We waited for about 15 minutes and we decided to leave, very rude.
