A great place to visit if you're in the area.
The house had 2 notable families, the Bushes (1750ish-1850ish) and the Holleys (1875ish-1950ish), and half the house is decorated for each family. Our docent-led tour had 7 people, including the 2 of us. Even though it was a weekday afternoon, someone brought along a 5 year old child, who was well-behaved but the docent did pay entirely too much attention to him and skewed the whole visit to appeal more to a child - not ideal, but not a deal-breaker.
Our guide was knowledgeable but did seem a bit nervous. It was okay, though.
The Greenwich Historical Society also has a lovely display in the next door house (where you go to buy your ticket - $10 for an adult). We spent an hour total between the Museum and the House.
The House was about 10 or 15 minutes away by foot from Cos Cob station.
