The last guided tour is 3:00pm and the last museum admission is 3:30PM.


Tours can be modified for special interests and age levels.  Tours may not be appropriate for children under age 5.  Since all three floors are visited on the tour, it should be noted that there is no elevator available. The first floor of the building is handicapped accessible, and handicapped bathroom facilities are available in the Carriage House.

"Beautiful home full of period pieces.  The staff is very knowledgeable about the history of the families and the history of Memphis.  You will enjoy the beauty of the home while learning so much about that era of Memphis’s growth and development."
