The exuberant Haas-Lilienthal House is a Queen Anne-style Victorian, and was completed in 1886. It is the only intact private home of the period that is open regularly as a museum, complete with authentic furniture and artifacts. The House has elaborate wooden gables, a circular corner tower and luxuriant ornamentation.

Volunteer docents lead interior tours through the House and explain the exterior  Victorian architecture. A display of photographs in the downstairs supper-room describes the history of the home and the family that lived here until 1972.

Tours of this house museum are offered regularly:

  • Wednesdays,  12pm – 3pm
  • Saturdays,  12 pm – 3 pm
  • Sundays, 11 am – 4 pm


Due to Mayhem Mansion SF 2016, there will be no regularly scheduled house tours available on Wednesday, October 26, Saturday October 28, and Sunday October 29 for the public.

Tours leave every 20 to 30 minutes and last about 1 hour. All visits to the house must be guided. Reservations are not required.

General admission is $8, and admission for seniors and children under twelve is $5. Tickets can be purchased on site.

Group Tours

Special private tours of the Haas-Lilienthal House are available for any size group up to 44 people and for groups up to 25 for our walking tours. We charge a minimum of $100/group or $10/person. These tours can be scheduled for any time the house isn’t open to the public or already booked, so the earlier you call to arrange, the better!

These tours can be made longer or shorter than the public tours, and we make every effort to tailor them to your group whenever possible, so please let us know if you have any particular areas of interest.  For more information or to book a private group tour, please contact
