We took the tour of the Thomas Wolfe home at about 10:30 am on a Wednesday. There is limited free parking at the house. The tour guide was excellent and the inexpensive tour was quite informative. The original furniture was spectacular for a 1900s boarding house. The exhibit which included many original family possessions was also very informative. The biographical film was truly excellent. One obtained an exceptionally good description of Thomas Wolfe's life and literary career. We highly recommend this marvelous experience to all. We spent about 2 hours for the tour and exhibits.

This memorial is the best bargain in town for an informative tour. Our guide Stacy was well-read and shared lots of details about the home and family. Besides the guided tour of the house, there is a short film and a small museum type area. At the time of our visit, tickets were $5, but the Hop On Hop Off ticket gets you in half-price. We were lucky to arrive for the first tour on a rainy morning and were the only people on the tour. I have never read any Thomas Wolfe (that I can remember) but now will at least try to read Look Homeward Angel!

This is truly a treasure in downtown Asheville. It's a historical site that encompasses the life of author Thomas Wolfe and his family. The tour operator was extremely knowledgeable and you could tell she has read many of his books. Even if you've never read any of his book or have never heard of him, you must go because you learn so much of how his life was and about that time period.

It's an inexpensive way to spend a lovely afternoon. While we were there, the locals were having an outdoor market and that was great! Call to see when they will have that and you'll be able to do two things while you're there!

The facility where you purchase the tickets is right next door and it has a free small museum if you don't want to purchase the tickets to tour the home. But, touring the home is well worth it!

We visited the Thomas Wolfe Memorial on a rainy day and received an exclusive tour trough the former guest house of Thomes Wolfe's mother. Our guide was very friendly and the given explanations were really excellent. Worth a visit also on non-rainy days.

Although I was vaguely familiar Thomas Wolfe and his writings, this tour gave some great insights into his interesting life and times. Although it is called The Thomas Wolfe Memorial it is more of a house museum with his “Old Kentucky Home” preserved and curated to accurately show the rooming house his mother ran and where he grew up. It provides deep insights on his bestselling autobiographical novels Look Homeward Angel and You Can’t Go Home Again.

I was not familiar with Thomas Wolfe. The museum is very well done, and informative. The house next door was not open due to lack of staffing.

What a great experience! I learned so much, about Wolf and his life and about his family especially his mother.
Start with the film and the museum. Then you are ready for the tour of his childhood home/his mother’s boarding house.
Our guide Stephen was really good. The house and all its room would be an attraction in itself even without the connection to T Wolf.
Highly recommend!

We had an excellent guide for our tour of the Olde Kentucky Home, the boarding house owned my the mother of Thomas Wolfe. Not only did she provide a great insight into the city of Asheville during that time but her knowledge about Thomas Wolfe and his family have inspired me to begin reading Look Homeward Angel and other books by this author.

The house and visitor center are definitely a "must see" if visiting Asheville

A very informative tour of the boarding house where Wolfe grew up. Well worth the small fee for the hour tour.

Enjoyable, low key tour of the boarding house that provided Thomas Wolfe material for his first novel set in Asheville. State and National Historical Site. Tour guide did a great job.
