Knowing almost nothing about Jefferson Davis, we decided this would be a good way for us northerners to find out more. We found the videos, the tour of the house, and the museum most interesting and worthwhile. The two videos focus on Jefferson Davis' life before and after the civil war but there was a gap in between, including what... More

Andrew Jacksons home and the White House of the confederacy. A good 3 hour visit to this place is just a wonderment of American History regarding the civil war and the South. I have been here several times and always learn something new each and every time.

Thiis property is larger than it appears. It offers a short, crisp history of the house, Jefferson Davis' time here is the focus, as is his library. Do walk to the back of the property and view the animals that roam freely. There is a lot to learn if you are a history buff .

Beauvoir has been restored to it's grandeur post Katrina. The preservation of 19 Century Southern living is amazing. The docent was very knowledgeable. The museum is full of great artifacts. There is reference library on site as well. The only comment I would send the museum is to get some professional help displaying the over abundance of pictures and artifacts.

Upon your arrival, you are scheduled for a private tour with one of the staff members dressed in period garb. We toured the facility, went and had lunch, and returned to tour some more. I am a civil war buff, so this was like a kid in a candy shop for me. Enjoyed visiting with their resident camel named Camelot.

Take a break from casino gambling when in Gulfport or Biloxi and brush up on some history. Beauvoir is the home of Jefferson Davis and a treasure trove of history on the Confederacy. The only way to fly here, in my opinion, is the rent a golf cart for a mere $10 at the gift shop and then tour the... More

I've passed by this home of Jefferson Davis since I was a kid. I've always admired the beauty of this home from the highway. Finally, we actually stopped and took the tour. This property is much more than the home of the Confederate President. It's also his presidential library, a confederate cemetery, and a museum. The tour guides were very... More

Excellent place to visit. The guide who gave the tour of the mansion gave us an excellent showing and talk about its history, complete with southern hospitality. The grounds were beautiful. the museum was a welcomed addition to the tour. A great place to visit if you have never been.

We had extra time in Biloxi, so decided to stop at Beauvoir, the last home of Jefferson Davis and the site of his retirement. Our house tour guide provided a lot of historical information; however, it would have been more interesting if he didn't talk in a monotone voice as though he was reading a script. We were surprised to... More
