  • The troop thoroughly enjoyed the house tour and playing the charade-like game. However, I believe the "She's Got Game" program could have been interactive. There was a lot of sitting and listening...

  • My sister dragged us here to relive her girl scouts days when she had visited previously. As an adult, it's an entirely different experience, realizing what an innovative and creative woman she was. Since I've visited other historic homes, I appreciate how many rooms are open to the public here. Guided tours only. House is immaculately preserved with art work and sculptures created by Juliette herself. Love the library dedicated to women authors. All the staff we interacted with were pleasant. They have a nice gift shop, even if they don't sell girl scout cookies 😫
  • Very good, interesting guided tour. Every Girl Scout should go once in her lifetime. The tour lasted about 40 minutes. The gift shop needs many more items to choose from, but it is small so that's probably why not much merchandise.
