This tour gives us a taste of her life and her accomplishments. The costumes were fantastic. Loved the White Christmas dresses. Happy the French's are keeping her and her legacy alive. There is a $5.00 entrance fee. Very reasonable. Our guide was the former Lt. Governor Steve Henry. He was very informative and his enthusiasm for Rosemary and her family... More

It was so amazing to see all that I idolized as a child...The blue fans, the white Mandy outfit, Rosemary's green velvet dress from the fake engagement scene of white Christmas...it was nice to see how she lived and how she enjoyed the comforts of a small town when she could've had the flashy lights of Hollywood as her doorstep....

My mom and I were in the area and wanted to see the Rosemary Clooney house while near Augusta. We enjoyed seeing all the movie and singing memorabilia from when Rosemary was very young and to right before she passed away. I enjoyed seeing her screen outfits from the movies she was in. Also our tour guide knew the Clooney... More

My adult daughter and I are THE biggest "White Christmas" fans in the universe and this museum was a dream come true. 3 weeks ago,we had no idea this museum even Existed and we made the 6-hour trip at our first opportunity. What fun! It was thrilling to see actual costumes - not only from WC, but from other movies... More

Our "Over Fifties" group from church visited the Clooney House on a lovely spring day. It was fun crossing the Ohio River on a ferry and to have such a warm and knowledgeable guide who toured us through the home of Rosemary Clooney.

Admission was $5.00 and worth it alone for the "White Christmas" room. Billed as the largest collection of White Christmas memorabilia anywhere. Other rooms had actual costumes, records, etc., from movies she was in and also some George Clooney items. Its a "self-guided" tour, and you can spend as much time as you want there!

Learned many interesting facts about Rosemary Clooney, her family, life, and times. Didn't know that Rosemary is George Clooney's Aunt not son. The guided tour of the house and displays was fascinating. It kind of out of the way but worth the side trip.

The Rosemary Clooney House musuem is a compact yet very interesting glimpse into the life of both Rosemary and her nephew George. Owned and operated by Heather Renee French (Miss America 2000) and her family, the museum is located within a refurbished c. 1840s house that was once Rosemary's. For a fee of $5, visitors can view costumes and memorabilia... More
