Elizabeth Farm is a barrier-free museum. This means that there are no locked doors or fragile pieces of furniture, so you can wander freely through the house as if it were your own and it's great for kids.
We took a free tour of Elizabeth Farm to help get a feel for the place. We found the guide knowledgeable and friendly and he tried to get the kids in the tour group involved. There were a few old-school games for kids like coits and a hoop game, where you try and push a hoop along with a cane.
Tours depart from the tearoom. From Wednesday to Friday, tours run at 11am and 2pm. On weekends, general tours are at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm with a Highlights Tour at 3pm. Tours take 45 minutes to 1 hour. Self-guided iPad tours are also available.
The front door of Elizabeth Farm does not face the street (the kitchen and the servant's quarters face the street). The doorbell is ornate and set into the wall and before you get to the porch, they have permanent shoe cleaners!
