Good for girls scouts to visit.

Nice house, informative docents but not my cup of tea. I did enjoy the gardens which were just starting to bloom.

This was our first house to tour in Savannah. Only $10 for a chance to see a bit of history. When you start, you get to see a silent video relating to the Girl Scouts. That video and the actual tour of the house takes perhaps an hour or a bit more. But it's well worth the time and money.... More

An old house for lived in by the founder of the Girl Scouts. Interesting tour for the Girl Scouts in your family. Take time to watch the silent movie in the waiting area.

We visited it as part of a ghosts tour. The interiors were were so elaborate and intricate. A lot of the original furniture has still been maintained and displayed. There was also a first edition alice in wonderland in the library. however, as part of the night tour we were only allowed to tour the ground floor. The entire house,... More

As a lifetime member of the GSUSA and a Gold Award recipient I had to visit the Juliette Gord Low Birthplace while I was in Savannah. The tour was incredibly informative and well done and our guide was fantastic. The video, a promotional film produced in 1918, which is screened at visitor center in the house is fun and neat...

Plan ahead especially if you are taking a group. Loved "Rainy Day" activity. Tour home is worth visit as well. Gift shop ok - not necessary.

As a former Girl Scout, I couldn't come to town and not visit this house! I really didn't ever know much about Juliette Gordon Low, so this guided tour was very interesting. Although we had a tour guide, we weren't rushed at all and had plenty of time to look at everything in each room and ask questions. Highly recommend!

Apparently, it is a Savannah custom to close many attractions and restaurants for the first two weeks of January, if not the entire month, for " cleaning and restoration". Not the best time to visit

The guide was excellent in telling the story of Juliette Low's life as she lived it in the house...with handicaps of hearing difficulties, and unfortunate marriage...but the strenght of character to "carry on: I asked the guide about the tour when young scouts were present and the tour deals more gently with the difficult life that the founder of the...

I am a lifetime Girl Scout and when I had an opportunity to visit Savannah in January I jumped at it. The Birthplace was at the top of my Must-do list. Imagine my disappointment to find that the Birthplace is closed for the first part of January! My guidebook did not mention this nor does the website. SO disappointed... sniff... More
