The Miller House showcases the work of leading 20th-century architects and designers Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard, and Dan Kiley. In 2000, the Miller House became a National Historic Landmark. The home, completed in 1957,was described in the Wall Street Journal as "...not only a landmark of modern architecture but also a fine example, possibly the finest, of a kind of modernist design with which too few are familiar, one that is warm, livable and majestic as it flows together with the landscape." Tours begin and end at The Columbus Area Visitors Center, 506 Fifth Street (not at the house). This guided tour is oriented to adults and children over 10 – please note only children over 10 are allowed on the tour and all guests must purchase a ticket.

This house, designed by Eero Saarinen, is spectacular. If you have the time for this tour, it is highly recommended. The interior design is very cool, and many of the details are pretty special.

The best time to take the Miller house tour is in the spring! The landscape is always beautiful but in the spring the grounds are covered with tulips. It's a short 1 hour tour but we'll worth it if you enjoy modern architecture.

We enjoyed our trip to Columbus, IN in May and capped it off with a tour of the Miller House. The house was very modern at the time, reminiscent of a Frank Lloyd Wright house, and was interesting to tour. I loved the vibrant colors,...More

The house is an interesting tour. The guide, Bob, was very knowledgeable. The grounds are impeccable. I had never heard of Mr. Miller, let alone how influential he was. If you like architectural tours with interesting history, this is one for you.

This house epitomizes modern architecture. It's a wonderful way to experience how Eero Saarinen's design of spaces, Alexander Girard's rich interiors and Dan Kiley's minimalist landscape worked together to create a livable, timeless residence. We also learned a lot about the Miller family and it...More

Took the tour on a rainy Saturday. You start at the Columbus visitor center (which is worth seeing itself). After a short film presentation, you board a shuttle bus which takes you to the Miller House. Although the tour lasts over two hours, I was...More
