Beautiful home from another time.

Beautiful home from another time. Filled with beautiful Victorian antiques. Great tour guides. Very knowledgeable about the home and its occupants. A must see in Mobile.

Beautiful house with much history! My favorite house in the City! It is a must see while visiting Mobile, AL. The Open House at Christmas is an amazing event, it will start your holiday season off right!...I go every year!

We stopped here before lunch on our way home from the beach. We needed to stretch out legs and thought a home tour would be interesting. It was awesome! We got a private tour and really enjoyed Sheila our tour guide. The history of the house is incredible. The ghost stories and pictures were fun and helped engage our 6... More

The ladies that gave us the tour were fantastic. They knew everything about the home and could answer any question. They were very understanding and patient with my 2 year old daughter. I learned a lot and enjoyed our time there very much.

A great museum showing period furniture and housewares and the guides were very informative. They even served tea and cookies following the tour!

After a very disappointing start to the day with the USS Alabama, we got a second hand suggestion to hit the Richards-DAR House Museum. What a surprise highlight of Mobile it turned out to be. Laura & Judy, two adorable women who are members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (hence the DAR in the name of the establishment),... More

My, mom, a friend, and I spent the day in downtown mobile (we're from Florida). Our second stop of the day was the Richards DAR house. It was the most relaxed tour of a historic home I have ever been on! I learned so much from the sweet ladies who guided us through the beautiful home. After the tour we... More

Mondays are slow, so I got a personal tour. I was able to ask a lot of questions. Stay as long as I wanted. At end of tour I was personally served hot spice tea and cookies in the gift shop. Take cash. They can't take cards yet. They are working on it.

My wife and I were married in Nov 2011 and we held our reception at the DAR House. This is a wonderful museum, but also a great place for a reception. This is classic Old Mobile with southern charm. Also has a great courtyard and carriage house for outdoor DJ set up and dancing. We love the DAR House!

Great one-hour walk-through for a bit of history, some interesting antiques and ends with tea and an opportunity to purchase some neat cookbooks.
