    Loved it!!

    I just love the history. Enjoyed sharing it with my son. Liked I could go at my own pace, but I did miss the guide and the third floor. I’d seen that in a previous tour.
    Learned new information.

    Young man docent was very informative and knowledgeable. Very interesting tour! I did not realize that during the Civil War, part of Mary’s family had allegiance to the North and part to the South.

    The Bannister that Abraham Lincoln used . The candelabras from the white house . There were so many wonderful things to see . I felt in awe thinking about our first Lady and one of our greatest presidents having walked the same halls . The museum staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and it felt as though they were welcoming you into their own home
    Not exactly as expected. However- gracious staff.
