Very entertaining, interesting and factual. It was a great date night or take your guests to. We went for the ambiance but the food was great too. The Noah a Webster house is unique and always 'delightful ' For this event we did purchase tickets ahead but the Noah Webster House is a museum and great for young people

The house contains many original architectural components and has been restored where needed. The tour guide was one of the best I've ever had the privilege of spending time with. His period and subject knowledge is only surpassed by his enthusiasm. Don't miss this historical site!

Be sure to watch the short video before or after the tour. Our guide was very informative, giving a reminder of what life was like in our early history and the important place Noah Webster had. The tour made me more curious and so I read the biography of Noah Webster. This historical place also holds various evening events- check... More

I hadn't been to the museum in awhile and was glad to have the refresher on an historical figure that helped shape our nation. We spent an hour or so on the tour led by a knowledgeable and engaging docent. Afterwards we explored the current special exhibit (History of Business Development in WH) which was quite intriguing. Whether you live... More

Slept over with 23 girls for a birthday party. What a memorable way to learn history and have fun. The museum had interactive activities, crafts and food.

I'm a fan of Noah Webster, so I already knew a bit about him and also about historical homes like this. Therefore, a lot of the information was repetitive for me. Either way, it is a good attraction that has been updated for kid activities and an intro movie about Webster.
