Covid Pandemic Update

Nov. 17, 2020 – Due to Tier 3 mitigations announced by Illinois governor Pritzker, our guided tours are suspended until further notice. When restrictions are lifted, you will be able to book tours from this page. Please check back often and thank you for your patience!

All Tours include both floors of the House and the Stable/Carriage House. The Gift Shop is open during tour hours; other times by appointment. Tours include photo pass; no selfie-sticks, tripods or commercial use photography is allowed within the buildings. Standard Tours are one hour in length; the history of the House, its architect and design and the residents who lived or worked here are shared with the visitor. In-Depth and Off-Schedule Tours include similar information to the Standard, but in much more depth and are 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length.
