Good tour guide—provided a lot of family history. Worth seeing. A lot of steps but an elevator is also available.

We enjoyed this historical tour. It takes 75 minutes to take this tour which is a little long but, we were able to see the entire house and the docent gave a ton of information about the Pabst family. I'm glad we took the time.

We had a great tour that lasted over an hour and a half. Well worth the admission. This is an up close tour with access to the entire house.

We were amazed with the decor in this mansion. I can only imagine how the Pabst took pride in this place. This mansion is definitely something you need to visit.

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.
