beautiful fixtures, great tour guide. Tour guide did a wonderful job of not totally ignoring the events that made the house famous, but highlighting the wonderful talent and taste of Mr. Williams.

Beautiful home and wonderful if you read "the book". Guide was very very good. I was disappointed we couldn't go upstairs to see the pipe organ but they had pictures. I'd do this tour again.

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
