Walking around downtown shops & restaurants we decided to also catch the house tour. Wow, so informative & fun. My teenage boys were truly impressed & regarded this as a fun learning experience. Garden was beautifully kept & house was just magnificent. The historic society has really put excellent effort in restoring & maintaining this house. Loved it!!

I will start by saying we enjoy touring historic houses and have been from Maine to California visiting historic areas and homes and have never felt so unwelcome or spoken to so rudely as we were by the person at the desk at this place. It was freezing cold rain that morning, had to park 5 blocks away, fed the... More

You can tour the gardens free of charge, but do yourself a favor and take a guided tour of the Wm. Paca Home, which includes a tour of the home and time (on your own) in the gardens.(Tour price is $10/person, but there is a $2/person... More

Enjoyed the guided tour of the house and strolling the gardens on our own after. Always love to see history preserved and commend their efforts to do so. The gardens seem like a beautiful place to have a wedding. Lovely place to spend a little relaxation time, too.

Lenna Lane, a docent and Rich from the gardening staff made our visit to the Paca House the highlight of our trip to Annapolis. Both were knowledgeable and generous in giving us the answers to our questions. Their dialogue didn't sound hackneyed and they were obviously interested in engaging with their guests

Beautifully restored home and garden with painstaking care for authenticity. Grab a flyer from the visitor's ctr or booth and get a $2 discount. Reg admission is $10. You can also get just a garden ticket for $5.00. Horticulturist in the garden was very informative on unique varieties of herbs and other plants.

This garden was a real little gem. It is a beautiful recreation of Paca's original garden, in a formal 18th century style. Just lovely!

Just to hear about the heroic restoration alone is worth the trip. Excellent guide. Knows a lot about the house and answered all questions. But the gardens are unbelievable. Wonderful. Worth the eight dollar admission.
