The regular guided tour is about one-hour in length and interprets the first three levels of the house. The objective of each tour is to interpret the architectural and social histories of the building and its importance as a National Historic Landmark. Each year, approximately 15,000-20,000 visitors enjoy the house’s museum collection, stained-glass windows, and faux finishes.

There are many stairs in the house. The building is wheelchair accessible through the Gift Shop Entrance at the rear of the building. There is also a small elevator that can fit two people or a walker.
