45 minute tour. The home is well preserved, interesting history. Lots of items to look at, but the tour moves fast. No air conditioning, so a bit warm this summer. Steep steps to a second floor. Tour maxes out at 12 people, so arrive early.

We bought tickets to History Colorado Center and got free admission to this house, located nearby. Only 3 people in our tour, so we got to ask a lot of questions. You need to be able to stand and climb stairs and keep your hands...More

Step back in time by touring this house. The last descendent that lived there died and left the contents in the house. It is darker in there, but that is correct by the time period. The tour guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic. The family there...More

The docent tour tells you about a hundred years of Denver history through the life and possessions of two important families. The furnishings are fascinating and almost entirely authentic to the home and the families....More

The Byers-Evans House is well worth a visit, combining economic and social history with an interesting and informative view of a local family. The volunteer guides are friendly and very informative, and we can really recommend spending an hour or so here.

We were here as part of Doors Open Denver and so the 2nd floor was not available to us. This house's history is entwined with the Byers and Evans families, pioneers with some wealth in the early Denver. The families' influences stretch beyond the four...More

We visited here after touring the Molly Brown house. The tour was not as informative but the house has been restored beautifully. It just lacked the story and enthusiasm but well worth the time to visit. Maybe do this house first then go to Molly...More

A lot of museums were closed on Easter Monday but this place was open. It's right around the corner from the Denver Art Museum which is a visible landmark. It's a guided tour 40-60 minutes, through the historical house which has only ever been occupied...More

The Byers-Evans House fulfills all the things that many lovers of historic houses want--rooms stuffed to the gills with stuff, lace curtains and period wall paper reproductions as far as the eye can see and arcane stories about unknown people who were genteel but not...More

The most amazing old house to tour in Denver! I've toured it several times and I thought it was more interesting than the Molly Brown House. It's almost entirely original and was the home of one of Denver's founding families.
