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.

I want to thank Jill for an excellent tour!!! The lady in charge of ticket purchases was also very friendly. The tour was extremely informative and boy did I learn quite a bit about Mary Todd Lincoln.

The gentleman who did the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. The House was much more interesting than I thought it would be. Lots of nice pieces inside and the history really comes alive.

Excellent tour, very informative. I have been there twice and they keep getting authentic items from family members, etc. Definitely worth visiting and this helps to keep the house open and in good repair.

Great house tour and only tour in the country for a First Lady. The house is very nice inside with lots of time period pieces. Only a few pieces are original to the Todd family or the Lincoln family. It was interesting to see what the rooms looked like originally before restoration. However, I felt like there was so much more that could be done or said about Mary. The tour just seemed to gloss over her life.
