To see the tour of the house was interesting. And to see some of the other exhibits was nice, but do miss the amount of exhibits that Pettigrew himself had in the house.

Reasonable entry fee and well-maintained. The guide was knowledgeable and took time with us. Part of an area of larger and older homes in the Cathedral area. Close to downtown and historic attractions there.

There is a lot of history of the area here. The tour was interesting and somewhat upsetting with the way Pettigrew took advantage of his power to take what he wanted. But that is history and it was still interesting.

Service was great. We arrived too early for a tour but were allowed to view detailed exhibits upstairs. We requested an abbreviated tour and our guide was very accommodating. So glad we stopped and learned more about Sioux Falls.
