A great tour for tourist or locals to learn more history about the Lincoln's. 3 PM is their last tour which is the one I took. We was not rush during the tour even though it was the last tour of the day. The tour was great and the people were very friendly. They were very knowledgeable. I like how they opened the whole room for you to go in. Henry Clay (great tour, also) ropes off the rooms. You can touch the original staircase that the Lincoln's have touched. The price of the tour is very reasonable. I was going to go on Mrs. Todd's birthday (I believe) which they were doing free tours. The traffic was heavy and I was confused where the parking lot was. This time taking my time I realized how easy it was to get to. The area is a great area. Visit downtown Lexington. The Square (shopping, eating) and Triangle Park are very close to MTL House.

I have visited the Mary Todd Lincoln house 4 times so far. When family comes in from out of state it's a good place to get some history. The tour lasts 1 hour and easy free parking behind the house. There is a fee for the tour.

Pricey .Guide was great. Free parking is available behind house. I only mention this I paid $5 at a downtown lot. Adult admission was $12, so it will depend how much value that you place on history.

Our tour guide, Katherine, was super knowledgeable. She answered any questions, and we never felt rushed.
The restored house is stunning. It's sad that it was ever left to crumble the way it was before restoration.
Full disclosure: (and they don't hide this fact) Mary Todd didn't live here long, and much of the site is a representation of how it was. However, they have collected as many authentic pieces as they could, and that they have restored it so nicely! And they do a fabulous job in telling Mary's story so that you truly empathize for her.
