All you see is main floor. Cannot go up, cannot go down, cannot take picture, need to have your phone turned off. The visit of the gift is free. Then rent he movie from your public library for free.

Good and Evil seem to be the extreme reactions of reviewers. We rate it good (great really), and I find it amusing that some people would have such a strong negative reaction to it. The mansion beats the heck out of anything even most upper...More

If you've read the book, saw the movie, or just want to visit an old historic home be sure to visit the Mercer Williams House.

Great spot for anyone who has read the book, neat to step into a favorite novel. Was not too familiar with the novel but still kind of neat to see how life was lived back in the 19th and 20th century.

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.

I can't remember exactly. Less than an hour! Maybe 45 minutes. Depends on how many people ask questions at the end, and if you stick around to hear the guide's answers. You only see the back garden and the 1st floor's 4... More
