Nice tour, fairly brief as it is only the 1st floor. Tour guide (Clarence) was very knowledgeable and had some great stories about the house and the family. Well worth the time and admission.

This is about a 20 minute tour. You only get to see the first floor. The house was left the way Mrs. Taft had it when she died. You MUST go to downtown Independence to get tickets for the tour. It's a great deal. Even my 3 and 5 year old had a good time. It's an interesting tour.
