Toured on a Saturday morning and found the tour guide very knowlegable and friendly plus the mansion extremey interesting. The biggest hurdle was parking. Give yourself plenty of time to find it!

Our tour guide was interesting and knowledgeable. This is a fantastic history of the beautiful house and that era is Milwaukee history.

I loooove touring old homes. This is a MUST SEE for anyone who shares that love. It is a very interesting tour and worth the time spent and amount they charge. I would like to go back at Christmas time to see it decorated.

We got to the mansion about a half hour early for a 3:00 tour which was good, because they were turning people away later when they hit their maximum. Wisconsin Ave is torn up right now, but there is decent free parking across the street...More

They have an elevator if needed. There are three floors to see and hear about. I did see a school group have to carry one of the students in and brought his wheelchair up separately when we arrived.

There is a small parking area around the mansion and then there is a lot across the street. Plenty of parking options.

Sorry, I can't remember cost, as I think back it was around $10 or so.
