Great tour comparing with tours in larger cities than Leadville. We had a great knowledgeable guide: the gentleman from Mississippi who led us through and pointed out things for us. He also dealt well with questions. The whole place is fascinating

An interesting and fun tour if you like old mansions. Though the house has been occupied by several owners and used as both private residence and boarding house, the character of the periods are well preserved. It's true that the furnishings are not original to...More

Tour two historic Leadville homes and see rooms full of antiques and historic artifacts. Learn about Leadville history through a lengthy guided tour. The museum is well maintained and clean and admission is reasonable for families.

My wife and I took an hour long tour of the Healy House Museum and Dexter cabin while in Leadville, Co. It is well worth the tour, lots of History and interesting items to hear about and actually see what the guide was talking about.

Typical historical home in Leadville. One of the main issues is that they only have one piece of furniture that is original to the home. The guide did not talk much, so the tour was rather brief.

I have visited this museum several times and was quite impressed at the quality of all the details of this museum. Of all of the museum in Leadville, this is one of the top three I recommend visiting for the rich history of the house.

This is a great place for history buffs. I've been on the tour 3 times - twice I've taken friends. The tour is led by various volunteers. Some are a little better but all are knowledgable. The cost is $6 for adults, $5.50 for seniors....More
