We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the home where Jefferson Davis wrote his post- Civil War memoirs. The architecture of the home is unique and designed to provide optimum exposure to sea breezes during hot Mississippi summers. The adjacent presidential library is a beautiful building and worth visiting for Civil War memorabilia contained therein. An added bonus -nature trails and... More

Great antebellum home... family loved the history and culture. The presidential library was great and the cemetery was really cool. My kids had a ball looking at how different people lived back in those days as opposed to now.

We are from the north and know very little about Jefferson Davis. We were passing thru Biloxi & only had time to tour the house. Our guide was Bo, who is also an enactor. He was a store house of knowledge. We visited the gift shop and found the store well stocked and warmly greeted. For anyone who is physical... More

We took the house tour with an excellent guide. Jefferson Davis lived in a cottage on the grounds for two years and then bought the home and lived in it for 10 years until his death. His daughter then lived in the house, and there was a home for Confederate veterans and their wives and widows in the back property... More

This place is very nice. The house was very beautiful with original furniture and paintings, the guide was very informative and polite. Answered every question we had. The museum is very nice. The cemetery has every plot marked and books with information on the veteran's and their families.

If you like history you'll enjoy it, and you'll also like it if you like animals. They gave goats, llamas, peacocks, parakeets. Really bizarre. The house is beautiful and has been restored since Katrina. Bout side it looks a little shabby, but that's understandable.

We have been to many of the Presidential libraries around the country and probably would have neglected this one if we had not been in the area. It rounds out the experience of Presidential libraries very nicely and breathes life into the whole Civil War study that we US citizens should undertake. The home is well preserved and the tour...

Such a great experience for me and my friend. The inside house tour was amazing. Over 85% original furniture even after Katrina. The outside features a nice cemetery of confederate troops. Completely worth the visit. Double thumbs up.

I enjoyed our stop at Beauvoir. I had not known that much about Jefferson Davis and his family. I found the film interesting. The mansion is well taken care of and the docents are very friendly and informative.
