Nostalgia to the fullest. It’s a guided tour of three house – Silas Deane , Issac Stevens and Joseph Webb house. The guides are quite knowledgeable, the houses are well maintained and have ample historical furniture. Worth a visit to know about Connecticut history.

Very interesting tour, given by an experienced and knowledgeable guide/docent. The homes are well maintained, the historical and contemporary furniture and other pieces tell a great story of life in Old Wethersfield. Very inexpensive ($10/person), I recommend this to anyone interested in early American history...More

The tour is very interesting. Kim was our guide and she was enthusiastic and thorough.You see homes with authentic antique furnishings. We thought the Nutting exhibit was not very interesting.

I don't understand why they charge so much for a museum, yeah it is nice they are reconstructed and kept the way they were originally but there isn't that much in these houses that is worth the 8 dollars a person.

Unimpressed. Paid $8 a person - but was placed in a tour that was near completion and subsequently not allowed to look in the 3 rooms that were part of the exhibit.
