This tour is fascinating and absolutely unique, NOT because of the obvious "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" angle, but because of Jim Williams' stellar collection of antiques furnishings, tapestry, china, lighting, and of course, ART. Such an amazing collection of art! I also love this tour because it's short. First-time visitors may be disappointed at not being... More

I love touring historic homes and museums. These homes contain the history of Savannah and the Mercer Williams House Museum is one of my favorites.

On our last afternoon, we toured the house and it was so worth the time. Gorgeous grounds with a lot of information shared by very knowledgeable guide. Bits and pieces of the movie were included in the tour.

I had read the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and was surprised to find this property and interior is a stand alone visit. It would be highly recommended on the merits of its history and interior decorations, if no book had ever been written or no movie ever made.

A fabulous house beautifully restored, with an eclectic collection of antiques. An interesting history as it was the home J. Williams of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We had an excellent tour guide. Huge gift shop.

Took the tour as a group of 6 and was very pleased with the information presented and very impressed with the house and its furnishings. If history, architecture and antiques interest you, you will love this tour.

We visited in an "off season", but reservations are almost essential, if you don't want a long wait. It is also helpful to have read the book "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." With that background, the implications of this tour are much more profound and interesting. The owners live in the house and we met one of... More

The house that was at the center of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a must see in Savannah. You will greatly enrich your experience if you watch the movie or read the book shortly before. The furnishings are beautiful and eclectic and the tour guide is extremely knowledgeable. Try to take in the once-a-month show by... More
