Create an itinerary including Reitz Home Museum
The Reitz Home Museum is a Victorian house museum located in the Riverside Historic District in downtown Evansville, Indiana. The museum offers year-round guided tours.

An authentic restoration offers visitors a step back in time with silk damask-covered walls, hand painted ceilings, delicately molded plaster friezes, and intricately patterned hand-laid wood parquet floors. Other features of the home include tiled and marbled fireplaces, stained glass windows, and French gilt chandeliers. Much of the home is decorated with original period furniture.
Considered by many to be one of the finest examples of the French Second Empire style architecture, the home has been featured in several issues of Victorian Homes magazine as well as Victorian Decorating and Lifestyle magazine.

In 2003 the home received a commendation from the Victorian Society in America for the preservation and restoration of the Victorian mansion.

  • Absolutely breathtaking. The guides are very knowledgeable. They were very nice and got my husband and myself in for a tour at the last second. We won’t be back to the area for a long time if at all, so it was a real treat! If you love the Victorian Era, this is a must.
  • Wonderful experience. Loved the original and authentic pieces of furniture, and the ceilings were magnificent. A beautiful historical Victorian house.
