If you are interested in learning little about how urban life may have been like in Wilmington during slave times and the Civil War, this house museum and gardens is worth the price.

Because of the time of day, we would not have had time to tour the mansion. The gardens were open and free of charge to walk through. Very beautiful and tranquil and interesting with the different levels.

I believe there is a paying tour of the Mansion, but I went to a backyard sponsored party by local bank and radio station which included beer and free catered food all through the inside of restored mansion. More interesting to those who love southern history and architecture. Which I appreciate but not as knowledgeable as some. Went to learn,... More

If you are yearning to see how the Upper Crust lived in antebellum Wilmington, this house museum is for you. Gain an understanding of urban slavery here. Hear how Wilmington and Ft Fisher played such an important role in the survival of the Confederacy till the bitter end. Take your grandchildren on an educational outing to the Bellamy Mansion still... More

We visited here over the Christmas Holiday. First of all the house is beautiful, and you can tour all of it, not just part of it. Our tour guide knew all about the history of the house, and answered any and all questions. After the guided tour you are free to look around on your own. I would allow at... More

We went here because the Burgin-Wright mansion wasn't open, but we were not disappointed! We did the full tour, which at $10 each for adults, was a great price. It includes a short video, followed by a tour of the slave quarters and the entire mansion, top to bottom. The docent was incredibly knowledgeable and did a fabulous job. It... More

Have attended several outdoor Jazz concerts at the Bellamy under the summer sky from early evening to sundown. What fun to relax and enjoy an intimate gathering for listening to talented jazz musicians. Bring your lawn chair, sit back and listen to some great jazz

Our tour started with a short film that really gave us key points to consider as we toured the grounds. The mansion is being refurbished and we appreciated being able to walk into all the rooms. The basement rooms were fixed up with articles typical of the day. The kitchen even smelled nice The rustic slave guarters were mind boggling.... More
