Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Hartford Reviews
We greatly enjoyed our tour here. We had fantastic, informative tour guide who taught us about Harriet’s inspiration for becoming an abolitionist, and also the social and cultural effects of her writing “Uncle Toms Cabin”. My husband and I found this tour to be thought provoking, while also getting to appreciate the house itself. There was a great deal of discussion questions, and we toured with some talkative, intelligent people in our group who I think aided to our learning. Bonus points that Mark Twain’s house is just next door!
My main interest in attending the Harriet Beecher Stowe museum home, was to view her home for my architectural interest for the period. The house tour was more if a literary discussion of Harriet Beecher Stowe literary works, and how her writing can still be influential in today's modern history. My recommendation for anyone taking the tour is to be prepared for the discussion. The tour was very awkward with just two if us. I'm sure it would have been better if our tour group was larger.
Learning more about her life gave me an insightful perspective. Touring her home was very fulfilling. The home was restored to the way it was when she lived there.
When we took this tour it was during the week so the place was not busy. The format of the tours is very unique and opens up some good discussions. Very interactive, informative and a very knowledgeable staff.
This was one of the best tours I’ve ever been on! It was a great overview of the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, how she came to write Uncle Tom’s Cabin and the impact the book had on American history. The tour is very well designed and really makes you think. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and we had some really interesting conversations. If you only have time for one tour, I would definitely recommend this one.
