What a great tour for $15! It was a bit longer than an hour because we just had so much fun.

They are well-organized and the docents knowledgeable about the family and the house. Questions are encouraged. Be aware there are stairs involved, for those with limited mobility. The garage is now a bookstore gift shop and worth a visit.
