Great place to visit and learn about some of the History of Washington, Ga. And of the South. The host is dressed as Robert Tombs as he takes you through the House.

Plenty of information to read about Robert Toombs. Home had recently been repaired from water damage and painted. The only problem is the grounds have no gardens to see. They talk about how... More

This house is historically correct down to the furniture used by Robert Toombs. There was a great video before the tour that is a must.It sets the stage for Robert Toombs life story and his part in the confederacy. Very interesting.

Great place to visit with the family, especially if you like history, and excellent if you like anything to do with the Civil War era.

We had toured the Robert Toombs House several times both by ourselves and with family. Each and every time you always see something new and learn a little more history. Great!

It was very interesting. It is a big house and the outside is very nice also. They were getting ready for an event the next day in which people came in dressed in period clothing. The gentleman that showed us around was to play Robert Toombs in the event. Will definitely be checking that out next year!

I am not from Georgia, so I am not familiar with Robert Toombs or his impact on Georgia history. I did enjoy the tour of his house. It is beautiful and the houses around it are just as nice. Our tour guide was very nice.

Great historic site to tour. They offer free progressive living history program throughout the year, check the website for dates/times. The museum is wheelchair accessible, but the restrooms are not. Robert Toombs House is open from 9 AM to 5 PM, Tuesday through Saturday. Tours are from 10 AM to 4 PM. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. (706)... More
