Great field trip when doing a study on presidents or Indiana history. The house is really beautiful and the staff is very knowledgeable. Not only do you see the architecture of a house built during that time period but you learn what life was like for them as well. In the upstairs, there is a small museum of artifacts from not only Benjamin Harrison but also William Henry Harrison and the rest of the Harrison family. This was very interesting and helpful during our study of Indiana. On the grounds in a barn, there is a museum showcasing material about womens' suffrage as well. Look for free admission on Benjamin Harrison's birthday.
