The house is amazing! You walk into most of the rooms and almost everything you see actually belonged to Harrison and his family. There are family photos, paintings, and even a letter from Abraham Lincoln on display. The guide knew a lot about Harrison, his family, and the house. It is not accessible for disabled people since one climbs staircases... More

We so enjoyed our tour of the Benjamin Harrison home. Our guide was informative and delighted us with many previously unknown stories and facts about Benjamin Harrison.

Well kept home of President Harrison which sits just off the interstate and north of downtown. The tour guide was great and very informative. Plan to spend 90 minutes with the tour and there is a nominal fee charge. Always impressed on how history is maintained in the USA. Not as glamorous like other president libraries as such

On our first visit we had a personal tour of the home of America's only president who lived in IN prior to being elected. It's been restored nicely and worth a visit.

A must do for history buffs! The house is very cool and they have done a great job preserving the house. There was a lot of facts about the family and we were hoping for more information about the actual house. The tour guide was a volunteer and he was new and was a bit green on the facts and... More

My son and I like to travel. This historic home was a good place to visit. We enjoyed the trip during the month of December because the home was decorated for the holidays. I love that this house was so well preserved and kid friendly for touring.

If you a historical junkie, this is the perfect haven for you. Boasting three levels of history, pay a small fee and take the tour. You get to touch many things and a large percentage of everything inside the home was used by the Harrison family. During that time, there was even a letter inside of the library that was... More
