DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — The owners of the “Field of Dreams” movie site near Dyersville say that for the first time they will allow tours of the house that overlooks the famous baseball field.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports the group Go the Distance Baseball announced Monday it would open the lower level of the house, which was used as a backdrop for much of the 1989 movie starring Kevin Costner. Until now, the house has been closed to the public.

Although there’s no cost to tour the baseball diamond or walk to the corn-fringed outfield, it will cost $20 for adults and $12 for those younger than 18 to see the house.

Denise Stillman, president and CEO of Go the Distance Baseball, says about 100,000 people visit the site annually.
