This is an inexpensive and rather small attraction. It is very interesting and well preserved and quite informative. The lady portraying Betsy in the upholstery shop was perfect !

I never expected it to be so nice and interesting - for 5 dollars only! The shop is soooo nice! I don't want to tell details not to spoil the impression, just want to mention that you are going to make nice pictures here!

Worth the stop. “Betsy” is working in one of the rooms to answer questions. Nice neighborhood to grab lunch too. About 20 min walk from convention center if you have a long lunch.

The audio tour is I believe $2 more...well worth it!!! The self guided tour will walk you through the house and they have very minimal signage. The audio tour explains the history of the house...the story of the flags... More
