“Beautiful historic mansion and steamboat history”

Howard Steamboat Museum & Mansion
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We stopped in for a tour of the Howard Steamboat Museum and loved that the mansion and Howard family history was so preserved. Our guide, Dorothy, was lovely and took us back in time as she showed us around. This historic home was especially interesting in that most of the furnishings and displays were actually of the Howard family and used in the home.

We have visited the Howard Steamboat Museum on multiple occasions. Twice just for the tour (we took friends back) and once for the the festival. What an epic way to enjoy a day, get a great look at the past, and an understanding of how people lived in a bygone era of great steamships. This museum is a really great place and great value! Highly recommended!

Thank goodness we stumbled upon this museum by accident. The combination of being a huge family home plus the artifacts of designing & building steamboats back in the day made us all interested to take the tour. It was a bit costly but worth every penny.

I went here with my Mother last summer and we both had a very nice time. It was nice for both of us to learn more about the history of this area and since my Mother is not from here it gave her a general feel for the area and what made it what it is. I would definitely recommend this relatively short tour for anyone who wants to learn more about the area.
