Jefferson Davis died as a man without a country. He certainly was a skilled leader in what was thankfully a loosing cause. This home and the library/museum celebrate his life and leadership in a interesting, informative and elegant way. It is certainly is a place worth visiting. The home is viewed as part of a tour and our guide was... More

An affordable tour of wonderful artifacts and a small presidential library. The grounds and Confederate Cemetery are worth visiting as well. Discounts are available through AAA and area tourism magazines. Many pictures are shown that depict the damage from Katrina and the recovery cleanup. Many of these are in the Presidential Library.

The house and grounds are just lovely. This place certainly lives up to its name--Beauvoir- as it is indeed a beautiful view. The view of the Gulf from the front of the house is just magnificent. The house tour was very informative and the guide really knew a great deal about the place. The tour itself was way too crowded.... More

Mostly restored from Hurricane Katrina. This is the estate of Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. There are many intersting antiques on display and you can get a good look at what life must have been like for southern aristocracy. I enjoyed the history lesson and the view of the Gulf and beach.

We toured Beauvoir on rather inclement day in the middle of February. It was still well worth visiting as a lot of things were inside. I enjoyed the tour and learning about the architecture of the main house, and the restoration efforts after Katrina. If you are an early American history buff this is definitely a good stop while visiting... More

This was a sad day for the employees of Beauvoir. They had had a funeral service for a long time employee that day. Everyone was still very helpful. Evelyn was INCREDIBLE! She spent lots of time answering my questions and going over information that would be helpful in my classroom. I could have listened to her all day. I thought... More

This was a repeat visit. The tour is always neat. We went before Katrina and this was our first visit since then. We saw the new displays and went to the gift shop.

Whether you are a history buff or not, this is a must visit! The restoration of the home and grounds is amazing. The library and gift shop are an added benefit to a visit here. As you step into the home for the guided tour it's almost like stepping back in time to the life of Jefferson Davis. If you... More
