If you've never visited a historical home from this era, I recommend stopping here. It's only $8 and will take about 1/2 hour of your time. You self-guide through the bottom two floors of the house, with plenty of text and historical documents to absorb.

This was an interesting stop during our recent New England visit. The space was rather crowded with people, although I understood that the numbers are limited of how many are allowed in at a time. We found the home itself and the historical information interesting.

There are some interesting exhibits here and the people are well-informed and helpful. Self-guided walk through an old house. Not bad but not worth a wait in line to do it.

It's a museum. My favorite part was seeing the many layers in the wall. A good house to see and of course the history.

If you have seen one colonial home, then you have seen this one. Yes, some interesting facts to read along the way, but not worth the wait, money and crowds.

Not quite what sure what to have expected but interesting non the less. Explanations available with an attendant available to explain the house etc.

This was very informative about life back in Colonial times. I liked that you could really take your time to see and read about everything. There was a "guide" there to answer any questions, but the actual tour is self-guided.
