Great. Kids loved it. Our 10yo was very interested in the exhibition before entering the house and then thoroughly entertained by the fellow in the garden reciting parts of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet (on request).

It's pretty amazing that Shakespeare's home is still standing. Significantly rebuilt and repaired, it is still awe inspiring to stand where he once stood. While other visitors comment on the guides, the day we were there the guides were few and far between. One of...More

I was really amazed that the building was still standing. I found the floors to be very cool. It’s well maintained and the people are quite informative. The gift shop was also pretty nice and it’s on a nice old street. Worth seeing.
