No tour
sie 2020
Although someone was in the office, no tours were being given; hence, the one star rating. Masks are required. I could only take pictures of the outside which is unremarkable.

Why are you open?
lip 2020 • Dla rodziny
We tried to take the tour today, but the office attendant refused to allow our "almost 12 year old" to go on the tour, told us a one-hour wait before anyone could do the tour, masks are required, generally was disagreeable and didn't want to do a tour. (2 cars in the parking lot) I really think she needs a different line of work. We were a family of 9. We left without doing the tour.

We drove 4 hours to be treated badly

The owner is a sharp-tongued older woman who has no filter. Her rude personality is off putting, and sets the entire experience in a negative light. The house is poorly set up, and the $10 paid is a waste, as there is no guide explaining the entire house. It could be so much better with a bit of personality added.

I would recommend to not waste your time. It is not scary, it is poorly furnished, then to top it off you will be verbally admonished by the owner.

Historical mystery
wrz 2019
The Villisca Axe murder house is more of a stop and walk through on your own kind of "tour". The girl that collects your money tells you the overall history of the family and the incident before you go walking through the house. She didn't really deliver the story very well and didn't have the answers to a few of my questions which was somewhat disappointing. And the house itself did not have any of its original furnishings so that took a lot of the eeriness away. But to actually see the inside and know what went on was still very creepy nonetheless. The tour only cost $10 and I am glad I checked it out.

Underwhelming
sie 2019
It's a cool historical house. The "tour" was kind of do it yourself.. the house doesn't seem creepy at all. They had a few groups just sort of wandering around at the same time.

Also, they only accept cash for tours. It does have air conditioning in house.

Rude Owner / Sorry Experience /
lip 2019 • Znajomi
As so many other’s have commented in reviews of this place, the owner Martha was extremely rude to everyone in our group and others ahead of us in line. After that, the tour guide gave a super lame, short, and very rushed intro that was definitely not worth the price of admission. The entire experience is definitely not worth it. I recommend saving your money, watch documentaries instead and do not support this ornary old woman who has zero customer service skills or appreciation for customers who drive long distances to see this place. The only thing that got murdered in this place was my hard earned cash.

Investigation of Villisca Ax Murder House
cze 2018 • Pary
We had such a fun and scary time here. We got some really good EVPs and heard kids voices and captured screams, voices, talking on voice recording. Captured orbs on pictures. Definitely worth it .

So Glad We Went
wrz 2018 • Pary
Saw the axe house on Ghost Adventures. We were in the area during our RV Road Trip so decided to visit. The lady who took us in to the house and told us the history of the murders was very interesting. We learned a lot from her. We then were left to explore on our own. You could spend as long as you like in the house. Most of the house didn't feel 'dark' or spooky at all. We had been warned by someone to be careful but we felt totally at ease. The only room that felt really bad to us was the downstairs bedroom. That's were the two little girls, friends of the family, had been murdered. I thought that was the saddest part of the story. The guide told us where all the graves were so we went to visit them. We got talking to the grounds man there and he won't go in the axe house as his wife has had paranormal experiences there! Glad we made the journey to visit.

Loved it
wrz 2018 • Znajomi
I visited with 4 friends. Villisca is a lovely little town and the house has a fascinating history. Johnny gave us an interesting history of the house which included details we hadn’t heard before. Then we were free to explore the house. Johnny was happy any answer any questions we had. The house is very spooky. Well worth a visit.

Seems a little pricey!
wrz 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I stopped here because I was in the area. I did not take the tour, $10 per person to walk around a small house just could not see it. I was told from previous people that the house has modern day items. It is probably worth seeing it if you are in the area.
