What a great place to visit if you like history and the civil war era. My 14 year old loves civil war history so enjoyed the visit through the home and the museum. The guides do a great job of providing some interesting family stories.

In Biloxi, had to stop here and soak up some history. $12.50 per person. Large grounds, some parts very well landscaped, others in need of a little help. Did the house tour, our poor guide was definitely having some allergy issues. But he did a good job. Was surprised that the house was as small as it was, expected much... More

We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed walking the grounds after our tour. There was a pen with a mother and baby goat in the gardens as well as some sheep and an alpaca. Inside the museum are many Confederate items such as uniforms, guns and supplies that were used on the battlefield. The cemetary was in the... More

We came here due to reviews on TripAdvisor and were instantly impressed upon seeing the beautiful architecture and landscaping. It also helped that the parking attendant dressing in Victorian dress was super friendly with that legendary Southern charm. The museum was gorgeous and full of vivid history into the life of Jefferson Davis, the Confederacy, Mississippi and Biloxi's role in... More

We had a awesome experience at the Beauvoir! There is something for everyone!!! I personally was delighted to see the interior of the house and how things work in the old days. My children (ages ranging from 2 thru 10) also were fascinated about the history of the place and even got some action in.They were shouting and teaching about... More

There is a fee to go on the tour of the Beauvoir home (about $13 per person) but I found a Groupon for $12 for both of us. Be sure to check Groupon before you go. The grounds can be a bit rough to walk on and it is not the best handicapped friendly place. There are many stairs leading... More

Very reasonable priced, plenty of parking and lots to see and do. First stop was the mansion with a guided tour of 8 rooms that are decorated in style of Jefferson Davis era. Tour guide was knowledgeable but lacking in enthusiasm. Beautiful grounds and the cemetery was my favorite. Very somber and well maintained area with tomb of unknown soldier.... More

If you're a Southerner this will resonate with you and the cemetery will bring a tear to you eyes. If you're a Northerner this will perhaps give you some insight into the Southern cause beside the standard explanation

My teen daughters & I stumbled upon this place as we were exploring Biloxi. We found the brochure in the Biloxi visitor center. We took the tour, and were able to browse around the grounds. They have done a great job keeping the place restored, even after Katrina & without adequate funds. Don't miss the gardens & animals.
