William the tour guide was excellent. Was definitely worth $10 per person. 1800s home that has not been modernized.

Besides seeing the structure of is early 1800's house, we learned about Mr. Lanier, about his financial support of the civil war and the state of Indiana. The guide was very knowledgeable and ready to answer questions.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot during our tour. The mansion was very cool and we were able to view every room. The price was $10 per person which I thought was a little steep but overall a good experience.

This home is a state of Indiana museum and is open almost everyday. Take time to stroll its garden on the south lawn. Or you can find a shady spot on the north lawn to take break from shopping. Bring your bag-chair to join us...More

The hours are correct as listed,... however, it is important to note that Sunday hours are a little looser. The person that led our tour and was very knowledgeable also ran the visitor center. So he needs to lock up the... More

It's a nominal fee of like $5.00 or so. I was with a special group and our admission was pre-paid. It's worth twice the price.
