Harriet Beecher Stowe Center reviews

An extremely well curated museum that recognizes the parallels between history and the present. The tour was enjoyable and relevant to modern events, despite taking place in a 150+ year old house. The house itself was beautiful and almost all of the furniture and art is original. Best of all, the gift shop focuses on modern political movements and writings that echo the importance of Beecher's work in her own time. This is an important museum in our time and does not feel like a dated history lesson. Well worth the trip.
This tour is on the same grounds at the Mark Twain house, although they are separate entities. This event offers a ticket discount if you purchase a ticket for the Mark Twain house.This event starts in the welcome center asking the visitors about other controversial books that they may have read. The tour then leads into the house (approx. 7 rooms on 2 floors). At each room, the docent encourages discussion about society and the impact of "Uncle Tom's Cabin " then and now.I was skeptical, but once we got into it, it was quite the amazing and unique tour. I would recommend it to everyone...and, it will only be great is you open up and participate.
