Wonderful place! Beautiful park like setting over 50 acres. Tour guide, Donna, was fantastic! She was knowledgeable of the history of the entire place, above expectation, and also able to work with various ages in group as well as individuals with different interests- history of the family, the house, furnishings... etc. Staff in the visitors center were warm and welcoming.

Beautiful place with great staff interaction! Makes you wish you could have been there before the hurricanes took their toll on so much original history! Great place to visit for a slow paced visit.

The museum was very nice and informative. The house tour was very good and the docent well informed. Even though there was a large group of students the staff keept them moving along and organized so we barely knew they were there.

I love to visit BEAVOIR ! The history and tour are great. The gardens are beautiful. Stroll around or sit in the Rocking chairs on the veranda. Let yourself imagine how it would have been to live in this beautiful house.

Such a beautiful home, library and grounds. Paths for walking outside. We arrived shortly before closing, so were not able to experience the whole thing.

Our tour guide knew every nook and cranny of this wonderful old home. 85% of the furniture is original and belonge Jefferson Davis family. Anyone who is interested in history will love this place.

We were pleasantly surprised that they had done such a great job of restoration after Katrina nearly demolished this great old house. They even have most of the furniture from when Jefferson Davis lived here. The tour was excellent.

My husband and son love history so this was the perfect spot for them. We enjoyed looking around in the museum before our tour. The view from the front porch of the house was wonderful! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but, unfortunately, had voice problems the day we were there so he wasn't as loud or chatty as he... More
