We recently took a tour of the Haas-Lilienthal House. It is a must see attraction. What a beautiful piece of architecture! The Victorian/Queen Anne house was built in 1886 and survived both the 1906 and the 1989 earthquakes. The details inside are second to none. Some of the original furniture is on display. If you want to learn a little... More

Little known fact that there are very few historic homes open to the public in San Francisco. I was staying in Pacific Heights and happened to find the Haas-Lilienthal house nearby. I stopped in and happened to get a private tour at 2 p.m. My docent guide, Christopher, was very knowledgeable and clearly loved his volunteer work. The house itself... More

This is one of the very few excellent examples of an upper middle class Victorian home that remained in the same family for 100 years until it was donated to a nonprofit historical organization. Go for the tour inside, good value. Discounts for kids, seniors & AAA members. Guides are knowledgeable & have done research. The house will be closed... More

We've driven by the Haas-Lilienthal house many times on Franklin. We finally took time to take a tour and we are really glad we did. Our guide was personable, engaging, knowledgable and interesting. The house itself was beautiful. It is unique in having been in the same family since it was built. The tour connected the family, the house, and... More

Most tourists and locals might miss this hidden gem. This is San Francisco history at it's best. We paid $8. No pass. No advance purchase. Show up during hours and get a tour every 20 minutes. The tour did last hours and was so worth it! Our guide was so informative and nice. The facts, history, and antiques were great.... More

The architecture of the building is beautiful. An interesting step back in time. Tim, our docent knew so much about the wood, the building, the history. He helped the house come alive

There are still many Victorian Home tours in San Francisco (we found several and got some beautiful postcard type pictures). This is the only Victorian house tour in San Francisco, so it was interesting to see and learn about the architecture, the period furniture and the history of the Victorian homes in the area.

There are some exceptional features in this well-preserved classic Victorian. But the highlight was our well-informed and charming docent who put the family, the location, and the structure in a great context. Time well-spent for any old-house junkie. Tip: Bring your picnic lunch to Lafayette Park and make your own walking tour of the area.
