We really enjoyed this beautifully maintained piece of history. We all learned so much about Helen Keller and what a magnificent woman she was. Our three children, ages 8,10, and 12 really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the museum room in the house very much. What...More

We visited with my sister and her husband on a nice sunny day. The tour was most impressive if not down right inspiring about the accomplishments of this amazing woman. If you enjoy seeing a bit of history this is a good stop.

My niece who is deaf, but wears cochlear implants had read a book about Helen Keller so we wanted to take her to see where she was born. We watched the movie, Miracle Worker, before going. It was an awesome visit and the museum was...More

Ivy Green is a beautiful place to visit. Helen Keller's story is amazing, certainly a story of an amazing woman and her dedicated companions. The house and grounds have been maintained exceptionally well. I believe 80% of the furnishings in the main house and 100%...More

Wonderful little house, birthplace of Helen Keller. Beautifully preserved. Amazing original artifacts. Very thorough tour. Learned a lot about a woman that I didn't know. Worth the time.

I loved that the museum is located in Helen's childhood home. Our guide was wonderful with many stories to tell of Helen's life. I hadn't realized how much Helen accomplished during her lifetime. Truly a remarkable woman. It was worth the visit.

What a great tour, our guide was very informative and took time with our group. Ivy green was open on the Fourth of July! (Not many things in the area are open.) Everything was well caredfo. It felt like we’d gone back in time.

The three ladies touring the house were very knowledgeable. They knew the items in each room without even having to look at them. The guide didn’t go upstairs but the area was a bit small. It’s probably a visit once type of place.

Park in the parking lot and you can walk around certain areas around the house. There are some exhibits you can view for free and you can get a picture of the front of the house.
