I live in Winston-Salem and had been many years since I visited the museum. I had out of town guests and thought it would be a pleasant afternoon. The grounds, house and artwork is worth the visit.

I loved the simplicity, yet gravure of her home. She was quite the lady, and loved the basement full of fun for the children. Wish they would have a high tea party!

I live in High Point and have never visited your museum. This past weekend I had out of town guests and thought it would be a pleasant afternoon. We were all totally disappointed, not with the grounds, house or artwork (which were all beautiful and worth the visit), but with the demeanor, attitude and the condescending behavior of all but...

I'm local to Winston-Salem but I'd never been to the Reynolda House before. I expected to find a refurbished house with some pretty paintings on the walls. Instead I was amazed to discover a sophisticated and professional museum with a dedicated staff. The history of the house and it's family is very interesting and clearly articulated through panels, artifacts, and... More

The house had a few docents to answer questions but the main tour revolved around numbered stations with a recorded guide that we were supplied at the front desk. The recordings have info and docents answered questions. The house is beautiful and somewhat different than most homes of wealthy folks. Many of the paintings Were described on the recording. The...

This was a great place. Lots of history and the audio tour was great. Wish we had been there when the gardens were in bloom.

Though the art shows had a small number of selections, they were well presented. The staff was helpful. The grounds are pleasant to walk though the Reynolda Village was completely about tourist consumption. You can play or picnic on the grounds and it is a pretty setting.

Spent about 2 hours here on a recent Saturday. Went to see the current special exhibit on modern American paintings which was very good. Interesting story behind the house, the family, etc. would like to come back a little later in the spring or early summer when the garden has more blooming. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Winston-Salem.

The house is a gem, with each of the rooms offering fascinating design and history. As others have mentioned, make sure you see the costume collection in the attic and the amazing basement. There's also a small but excellent collection of modern art exhibited in some rooms of the house and in the attached building. I hope to return some... More

This is a review of the Reynolda Gardens. This is simply one of the most peaceful, beautiful places in Winston Salem. In the spring through fall it is filled with garden beds, roses, sweeping vines and verdant trees. There is a lily pad pond and plenty of places for reading and relaxation. I recommend this at the top of the... More
