We went through in a quick hours tour and managed to get a full story on this strangely interesting place. The guide was animated and full of information. So glad we made time for this huge house.

The house is worth a visit. But I am so glad that we bought a Groupon before hand because for the full price I would have been really disappointed. We had a great guide. Super energetic and lots of good ghost stories. These were my...More

Having been there multiple times through the years, I wasn't expecting it to be exciting. But I went with friends who hadn't been before. I really enjoyed it. I just wish there was a way to explore the rooms up close.

Came for Halloween night tour. It was expensive but fun. Did make me want to come back during daylight hours. Great for everyone including kids.

Don't be shocked at the high admission price (37 for adults). The money is used to continually restore this one of a kind house. There is no stat funding so the admission fees have to cover it. This is a unique house built by an...More

All the options are interesting and fun but the Halloween candlelight tour was fantastic and it can be a bit difficult stumbling about by candlelight.
