My wife & I spent 40 minutes on a private tour of the Manigault House across the street from The Charleston Museum. Tours run every 30 minutes & we were the only ones there. Andrea is a relative of the Manigault’s so her tour was...More

We visited the house as part of a tour group. I've seen a lot of historic homes. This is nice but not fabulous. The tour does give you a flavor for Charleston's French Huguenot settlers. It's good to see a property restored....the back gazebo used...More

We had a half hour guided tour of the sympathetically restored house. The original owners were rich and had all the furniture hand made for them. There were elegant rooms for guest to see and more basic rooms for family use only.

We did this tour as part of the Charleston Museum Tour package. It was not as good as I expected. It was a quick 30 minute tour of the house. It was nice, but left me wanting more.

Street parking likely for 2 hours. If you are also going to the Charleston Museum, find a garage. Close to 39 Rue de Jean, which I recommend highly for lunch. Built when this was the rural edge of Charleston. Plenty to see inside. Nice wait...More

This historic property is located right across from the Charleston Museum and is a worthwhile stop. Knowledgeable tour guides take you on a tour of this restored property. Gives you a good feel for life at the time and an overview of Charleston history.

A fascinating and very atmospheric old house just opposite the Charleston Visitors Centre and the Charleston Museum, at one point I think in the 1930s it was due to be knocked down and turned into a gas station but proud Charlestonians fought to have it...More

This beautiful house is impeccably preserved. Yes, there is restoration, but, according to our very well informed guide, 90% is original; that gives you the real insight into the level of wealth this family enjoyed. Unfortunately, you do not see any example of how this...More

This antebellum house, built by a rice planter, is a thoughtful glimpse into wealthy pre-Civil War lives. The house tour is not long, is informative, and is given by guides open to questions.The central hallway with its deceptively light spiral staircase is an elegant look...More
