We only toured the house, but the historical museum is a part of the admission. The house has a great story if you get the right docent. Unfortunately, the upstairs was not open. Allow 30-40 minutes.

Worth the visit! Period costumes, intriguing stories and history, interesting interior with beautiful furniture. Make this a destination along with the Heritage Museum, then go grab a cheesesteak in downtown.

Volunteer tour guides are informative and willing to answer any questions. It would be great if the building could be restored completely to original appearance.

Beautiful stone home adjacent to the Lehigh County Historical Society (which is also worth a visit). Unfortunately it is seldom open to the public. Worth inquiring about open hours at the LCHS.
