We were so excited to tour this house but it was a complete waste of time and money. Our guide was very friendly, but we couldn't talk about the murder. If you want to learn about the murder, forget it. If you want to pay...More

The Mercer House is beautiful and you get a very basic tour and understanding of Jim Williams' collection. He was a fascinating man who was a wealth of knowledge on fine items, their worth and their place in history. But do not. Under any circumstances....More

Was so excited to finally see this place close up. Didn't do the museum tour but a couple of our other tours spoke and visited this home. Very creeped out about the boy who fell. Yikes!!!

The tour consists of the first floor and garden not the entire home as you are led to believe. The reason is safety. There is only one exit from the upstairs area so you can forget about seeing the grand pipe organ. Absolutely no photography...More

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
