We visited this site with high hopes, excited to learn more about the only president of the Confederate States. Unfortunately our guide focused his voice and attention on the people at the front of the group, and focused his discussion on all the restoration work that was done to overcome the damage done by Hurricane Katrina. Since it was our... More

This site seemed more like a tourist trap than a fun tour. The home is small and not worth the time of the visit. The idea of celebrating the life of someone who was instrumental in perpetuating slavery and who lead the confederacy in the Civil War didn't appeal to me.

This mansion and estate on the Gulf Coast is a finely restored property at which Jefferson Davis, former Confederate States president, spent his later years. The property had been very heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but has been immaculately restored. We took a tour of the main house with a knowledgeable docent, walked the grounds, spent some time... More

It is a beautiful historic home to the late president of the confederacy Jefferson Davis. It is a great setting with the gulf of mexico right in front of the home. It also includes a new presidential museum. The only such facility in MS.

Beauvoir blew my mind! I had been here before. There is now a so-called guide in the library that gets involved with us now-excellent! She was very impressive with her wide vast of knowledge. Not only did she know the history of JD, but offered her assistance with my children by keeping them occupied while I did some research on... More

We spent about 4 hours here. Actually watched the video, toured the house. We then left for lunch and returned (keep badge to get back in), toured the museum, cemetery and grounds.

Changing to hourly tours can be very inconvenient for guests who don't have a lot of time. I realize that using volunteers require coordination of staffing but even if you just have someone monitor the house and let people in to look around instead of doing a formal tour , it would be better than expecting them to kill time...

This is worth your time. The tour guide was very informative and the house and grounds are stunning. Very well preserved. Take the time to walk the grounds and gardens. We loved seeing the Camel too! Don't forget your camera!!

I live a mile or two from the Beauvoir. My family came to visit and took them here with very low expectations. I thought the price was steep but this is before we went inside. The building is amazing - it really is built like a presidential library. The quality of the building however does not match the quality or... More
