Review №1

What a great place to trace John Wilkes Booth and David Herolds escape route.Thanks to the terrific guide, I think her name was Lynn, you are transported back in time. A thorough tour of the house, information on the Surratt family as well as the time Booth spent here.Very inexpensive for the quality of the content given. Adult admission is five dollars. I would recommend anyone interested in American history to visit.

Tour guide was very knowledgable! He took his time, and had information on other things in the house as well. I found out a lot more than I had heard before. There is a very small gift shop. Only complaint was there was only one bathroom to be used for both men and women.

What a wonderful piece of American history. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and thorough. The gift shop had some really amazing things to look at.

Excellent review of the events surrounding the Lincoln assassination and the people involved - or were they? Nicely preserved/ restored building, good information, would have liked more time to read some of the displays that fall at the end of the tour, but I think being it was just my wife and I we got a little bit more story from the docent and that was good, too. Youll enjoy it!

We’ve visited twice this summer, and we’ve gotten very different talks by the docents each time, which was a little surprising. I would have expected a more standard talk that takes care to cover the same key facts. But the guides were very personable, and the house is interesting, particularly the uninsulated room above the kitchen that was apparently the bedroom for one or more slaves at the house.

This is a place not to be missed if you like the history of the Lincoln asanation and John Wilkes Boothe escape. Very worth your while and this connected to some other historic sites and homes makes for an interesting trip. Please do go and enjoy your time at this most interesting place.

Review №14

We visited just in time to take a tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the house and the history of the people linked to the house. Worth the 5 dollars to take the tour.

Review №15

Great docent who told a fascinating story focused on Mary suratt and the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Review №16

I took my kids (12F, 9F, and 9 month M). We had a great time. My father lives less than a mile away, so I decided we should visit. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. My family was the only group on the tour at the time and the guide kept it entertaining and informative. He answered all of our questions. If you like to learn about American history, this would be a great stop.

History is interesting

Review №18

The Mary Surratt House is beautifully preserved and furnished with many exquisite period pieces. Did you know the Surratt Tavern and public room were once the popular gathering place for Confederate sympathizers in Prince Georges County?. We had a docent who was wonderfully well-informed and full of arcane details about the home and Mary Surratt which she spun out in a fascinating way. This is a first-rate way to spend a couple of hours of a fall afternoon.

They run tours on the hour so plan accordingly. Thedocents are dressed in period attire and are very knowledgeable.

Review №21

I’m a rehab therapist and I took a group of folks there today with disabilities and they did a great job accommodating us. The guide kept us entertained , the management treated us like friends and the house was decorated with great detail true to it’s history. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a professional tour tucked in an easy to get to location. I left wanting to know more about local history with books in hand. A gem!

If you dont already know the entire story, then dont visit. Not much information given. A few nice touches, but, no really worth the time to visit.

If a history buff this is a must. This is the house where John Wilkes Booth first stopped to pick up a rifle and ammunition after the assassination. Children would be bored to tears.

Limited hours but just walking around outside is still fun and informational.
