so we were surprised to be sold a ticket at 3.30 with no mention of the closing time. We had to come back the next day to see what we'd paid for. You certainly get a taste of how hard life must have been for the poorer inhabitants.

Great area for a walking tour. Charming streets that are a blend of New Orleans, Key West and Charleston. Many restaurants, cafes and music venues to choose from.

We had an afternoon to fill and we found this place on a map. It was a really good time. Tour was $5.00 (senior and military)...and there was no one there, so we got a private tour of the homes. September is a great month for Pensacola (kids back in school and snow birds haven't shown up yet). Our guide... More

If you love history and you love Pensacola, this is the place to go! Took a guided tour and learned so much about the first settlers of Pensacola. Great experience for the kids too.

This is best when broken up into 2 days. The walking guided tour took 1.5 hours. Those with children were done with it in about 45min. Our tour guide was wonderful. The self guided tour was another several hours. Which was done on another day. I liked that this organization stuck with time appropriate furnishings. Who knew Pensacola had such... More

Walking through museums and historical site preservations is not everyone's cup of tea. But if this is a type of site seeing you enjoy, this is a great destination! Well worth the cost of admission, the docent led tour was interesting and creatively presented. Additionally, there are several buildings you may view on your own included in the price. The... More

What a great place! Historic Pensacola is fun, and history really comes to life here. Visit early in the day because they close up around 4:00. A very reasonable priced ticket is avl. at Tivoli High House which gives you a guided tour to several homes with historic value in the area, as well as access to several others that... More

The downtown area of Pensacola is undergoing major historical renovation and the Historic Pensacola Village is a major part of this effort. Your first stop should be the Tivoli High House where you can purchase tickets to tour several of the restored buildings with an experienced guide. The staff there can also provide information on which properties can be visited... More

Unfortunately I cut myself short on time when stopping in to visit. This is a great opportunity to see real history on a clean and well maintained environment. Some items have cost, but you can visit the area for free.

Neat area to walk through but apparently every house requires some sort of toll or pass to get into. We went through there two evenings and everything was closed anyways. Two things we did enjoy were the Gelato place and the Brewery.
