My husband and I did the tour of Jefferson Davis home and thoroughly enjoyed the history offered. It was so interesting to see places we had only heard about from our history lessons. Worth the fee for this taste of history.

We took our 11 year old daughter to Beauvoir and we all enjoyed the visit. The main house is very well restored after Hurricane Katrina. The house is full of interesting and priceless Davis family items and furniture and the guide was very knowledgeable. We walked the grounds and visited the Confederate cemetery. They have horses, goats, sheep and a... More

What a nice piece of history! Great restoration after Katrina. All guides in period dress and very knowledgeable. Learned all about the owners and felt like I got a feel for the inhabitants and their love for Biloxi. Grounds are lovely and well-kept. Be sure to see the movie in the Library and Museum and don't forget to see the... More

Very nice restoration after the ravages of Katrina. Apparent that the builder was wealthy: round room corners and wall/ceiling junctures, huge front and rear porches, crazy coffin piano, custom furniture, separate dining for adults and children, artistic paint job, etc. The cottages are reproductions, but they were where Davis actually wrote his memoirs. Impressive that they saved as much of... More

The tour guide gave wonderful information about the beautiful house and her famous inhabitants. He set the scene well, but also stepped out of the way for exploration on our own. After the house tour, walked the grounds a bit and loved the baby camel, horses and other animals.

I thought the tour and the gardens of Beauvoir were nice. The Presidential museum had some Confederate artifacts and things that belonged to Jefferson Davis. Some of the museum seemed a little off to me especially the strange paintings of some of the confederate generals laying over confederate flag blankets.

Beauvoir, summer home of the Confederate president, Jefferson Davis, sits on a large site bordering Hwy. 90 or Beach Blvd in Biloxi, MS. The house is visible from the hwy, but when you enter the gate, its majesty and beauty are amazing. The estate is large with old oak trees and it's almost like stepping back in time. The tour...

We stopped as we moved from Florida to New Orleans on a family trip. Wonderful setting! The museum is asking for donation for exhibits and the exhibits could use a face lift, but it is interesting history. The house tour was very nice and the tour guide very knowledgeable. Over all great stop!
