We spent quite a while at Beauvoir. The house has been greatly restored since Katrina. It was interesting learning not only about Jefferson Davis and his family but also about houses and decoration of this period. There is an extensive museum in the library building....More

Such an interesting place. Our guide around the house was most informative. We watched a video before viewing the house which was also helpful. The cemetery was quite moving. All in all is definitely worth going to.

Great spot to hit if staying a day or two in Biloxi. Lots of room to walk around and see the offerings of the estate and library. Gift shop was well stocked with good stuff too. Very educational and lots to take in!
