  • VERY interesting & cool place to visit! I learned so much both times I've been here & would go back again. The first time, I did the house tour with my friend. The second, he and I went back and did the Behind the Scenes tour, which was also very interesting.
  • Our tour guide was phenomenal. She was full of knowledge and info. She answered almost every question thrown at her, which was impressive. The property and house itself, is amazing. The house is full of amazing artifacts and pieces of the Garfield family’s life that make it such a personal feeling when you’re there. I loved it.
