The mansion was spectacular and we got a nice glimpse of what life might have been like for that family. However, the film and the outdoor guide and the indoor guide all told the same story. The tour was to be an hour . We left after 90 minutes when there was no end in sight. We went up to... More

We toured the Bellamy Mansion this afternoon. Really enjoyed the tour and the history of the Bellamy Family as related to the Civil War Era. The Mansion had some unique features and the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Very interesting to see the slave quarters .We enjoyed the tour very much.

Upon arrival in Wilmington we had planned to visit The Bellamy House, we were not disappointed. Right from the start we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The short history film prior to our tour was very informative. During our tour we immediately got the feeling of how it might be to live during the civil war time period. Our tour guide... More

This was a short walk from the riverfront and was a great way to spend a few hours. The brief film they show at the sign up area was a good background about the history of the mansion. The tour guide was very friendly and offered interesting stories about the history of the Bellamy family and their beautiful home. There... More

Perfect place to visit to get a feel for the impact the civil war period had on all of the people who lived through that time. Tour guide was fantastic

I didn't plan to tour inside, but it's such a beautiful antebellum mansion that it pulled me in. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, but I prefer seeing fully furnished homes with period pieces even if the pieces didn't belong to the family. (The rooms that had furniture were best.) Since there are benches very near where the introduction takes place,... More

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and added to our understanding of what life was like for the residents and workers of this southern mansion. The introductory video was also interesting. The old piano and light fixtures were very unique and fun to see as was the upstairs "children's area".

I agree with the other reviewers that the house & tour are very interesting and well worth visiting, but you can't be in a hurry. Tours are advertised to be given every hour on the hour, but our tour was so long that I saw the next group going through with only audio/ earplugs. If the tour had been shorter... More

An informative video orients the visitor to what the mansion is about. Fun to imagine what it might have been like to actually live there. Maybe not quite as pleasant as it is now with indoor plumbing and central heating! Loved the opportunity to have a guided tour to see the rooms and furnishings. Now I know what a belvidere... More
