"The Miller House is worth a diversion of hundreds of miles and a day if you find yourself anywhere near -- it's one of the great modernist residences in the country and spending 90 minutes in the house on a very well guided tour is a true revelation." (Tripadvisor)

“Fantastic Mid Century House and Gardens...It's hard to believe that it is so completely preserved. It was a rainy day so we didn't get a chance to walk around the grounds, but the view out of every room was special. The guide was excellent as well. Go to Columbus and take this tour in addition to the regular city tour. You'll not be disappointed." (Tripadvisor)

"Yet another modern architectural masterpiece ... I don't want to give away all the lovely design surprises, but you won't be sorry you took the time to explore this Midwestern landmark, which is certainly international in its renown. (Yelp)

"Simply fantastic to see. We were visiting Columbus from Birmingham, AL and were lucky enough that only 1 other person wanted to see the house that day ... The house is a modernist dream and transports you right back to the 50s/60. There is such a peaceful serenity to the home and it's just such a neat thing to see, inside and out! Definitely recommend the tour if you love design from that time period, if you love various types of architecture, or if you love interior design and antique furniture. The slate exterior, the marble walls, and grid line sky lines along with the level of interior detail Girard put in, with the folk art, personalized rugs and monogrammed chairs and the colors, is truly something to see. It's a very personalized home and you can feel the love that went into the design and the decorating." (Yelp)
