“Wonderful introduction to my home town”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

I had lived in Appleton my whole life and hadn't seen this museum. A visit home to see family provided the perfect excuse. Don't wait until you move away!

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have visited the Hearthstone many times. I love the building itself, and the "gift shop" has some fun interactive points of interetest before heading in to the house itself. The tour guides have always been very friendly and informative. Every time I come, I seem to have lots of questions and they answer them to the best of their knowledge. There were a few times they had to find more info, but at the end of the tour they talked to someone else and I always got an answer. [ps. it's not haunted from what they know :) ]

“Beautiful old home”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We visited the Heartstone Home on a Saturday afternoon. We parked on a side street and walked the block to the home, rang the bell and were admitted to the house.
Our tour started in the library and continued thru the home. Of all the fireplaces the front sitting room was my favorite. The wood work in the home was amazing!

In the basement were some hands on learning activities about electricity that my daughter enjoyed. It was a great tour and a great visit!
