About this Event

Take a tour of this beautiful 10,000 sq.ft. Italianate Victorian family home of President Benjamin Harrison – our country’s 23rd US President (1889-1893) and Indiana’s only President. Built in 1875, the home is beautifully furnished with many of Harrison’s paintings, furniture, and other artifacts including political memorabilia.  This museum home features two Special Exhibit spaces. Entrance to special exhibits is included in the price of daily tours.

Tours will be given Monday thru Saturday at 10 AM, 12 PM, and 2 PM and on Sundays at 12 PM and 2 PM. Please note that reservations are required.

Tours start in the Welcome Center, located in the red barn behind the home.
