Great tour, beautiful grounds, lots of shade, great for pictures. I loved spending the afternoon here.
Beautiful home of early wealthy resident and artist Hugh Taylor Birch who built home in 1895. He designed and helped build house filled with artwork. Charming, whimsy. Lush gardens and house tours lead by helpful guides.
Fortunately a friend tipped us off about this museum, right in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale. The volunteers who are the backbone of this lovely home/art museum are knowledgeable and personable, and never made us feel herded or rushed.

On a recent stay in Fort Lauderdale I had the opportunity to visit Bonnet House. The tour was very entertaining and very informative. A great way to spend a few hours. Learning about the Bartlett/Birch history of the property and the the folks who lived there.

We took a tour of just the grounds and gardens for $10. The grounds were serene and pretty, but not outstanding. We did see a beautiful swan and an iguana. There were not any special gardens besides the desert garden. Overall, just okay. It gave us something to do on a pleasant afternoon to take a break from the beaches.
Worth the $20....Carol was a fabulous tour guide. Beautiful home and grounds to explore. Wonderful place for a wedding. Probably not super entertaining for kids
