This home and the art exhibit were very enjoyable. All displays in the visitors center gave you a great feel for the family that had built the home and lived in it.

One of the best places to visit. The home is outstanding and impressive. The gardens are beautiful, and Reynolda Village is charming. Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit should not be missed.

My wife and I visited the gardens at Reynolda House and I must say they were lovely. The roses were in full bloom and smelled great. We spent several hours walking around the gardens and shopping area.

We all found the tour of the house very interesting. The display of toys and clothes in attic was an excellent array of originals from the family. Worthwhile visit.
