Never learned much about the 23rd President in school. This tour was spectacular!!!! Learned about the man, the family, and the times. My kids were very impressed. Great snapshot of the late 1800's in America. Tour guide was phenomenal!!! Telling anyone going to Indy to take an hour and learn about their country and a solid President.
We visited the home on July 4th and had a very nice time. Seeing the presidents house was very neat and historical. The staff was very friendly and played the parts well. The tour lasts around an hour and there were games for the kids to play.
Special programs and an Ice Cream Social at the Benjamin Harrison Home made it a fun 4th of July afternoon for us, our children and our grandchildren.

interesting history of a family of 2 presidents . nice house to tour . also near by is the cemetery where they are buried and also the art museum

What a delightful surprise this venue turned out to be. It was filled with antique and historic items. I enjoyed learning about this president and his family
