Betsy Ross House Reviews & Ratings

  • The first time I visited this landmark (along with the Liberty Bell) was when I was a child. I wanted to visit again to revisit the history of this woman and the house. I always seemed to remember the spiral staircase leading to the upstairs. As an adult, it seems even smaller now. Going through the house is pretty fast since it is very small, so the fee of $5.00 to tour is fair price. It is not really great for large groups. They have an area outside for eating and drinking and they have a cute gift shop in the back. They have several people dressed in character from that time period, which is quite entertaining. This landmark is definitely a must see for tourist.

  • There is a courtyard that you can enjoy before visiting Betsy's House. There is a stand to buy water or snacks. If you want to buy souvenir's, there is a store as well. I thought the admission fee was appropriate for visiting the house ($5 for adults/$4 for students with IDs). There are lots of stairs so you need to be very mobile to visit this house. Very tight quarters. I enjoyed it and glad that we visited.

  • This historic place is lovely outside and gift shop. I didn't get the inside tour because of the limited time for touring downtown. It would be great if the kiosk outside sells more traditional quick bite food with cozier atmosphere equal to the outside.

  • We walked through as fast as possible which was difficult because there was a large boy scout troop there on the day we went. Nice history but it was quite small. The women in period dress were great in character. I just wish it wasn't so crowded I would have enjoyed it much more. I loved the grounds which were well maintained and scenic. I recommend going when there isn't a school or boy/girl scout trip.

  • Such an interesting place to visit. The history here is remarkable. The house is small to tour, but you can just get a sense of how they lived back then. Great customer service and a nice gift shop.
