Took a guided tour of the home with my girl scout and family. Was a good look at times gone by and had a nice gift shop

Michael gave us an excellent insight into this beautiful home and Mrs. Lowe's life. The house was beautiful and furnishings awesome. Mrs. Lowe's contributions to society and the girls of the world is worthy of this recognition. She was a very talented artist and inventor. It was an eye opening tour. Also, we didn't find out until Sunday that the... More

I did buy the package where I was able to see the other two houses - Andrew Low house and the Davenport house - I learned facts about this also,... More

Interesting place but is seem Juliette did not spend a lot of time there. Check out the other place she also lived and you will get a better idea of what she was all about. I gained a little more respect for the efforts by the ladies of her era.

The tour of the Juliette Gordon Lowe House was excellent -- our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the house, the family and the era of Savannah when it was built and the family lived there. Only one sour note: the gift shop needs some serious updating. Too many tacky items.

We came with a group of 9 for a Girl Scout troop. What a great day we had! The staff was awesome. Our girls learned so much and had so much fun. The activities that the staff came up with was great and very well organized.

I enjoyed see this beautiful mansion but would have loved to see the inside. I'm not sure they do tours but we did not see any information leading us to believe they do.

Thank you for your kind words about our lovely house! I'm sorry you missed our signage and didn't come in for a tour. We give guided tours of the house seven days a week from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Mondays through Saturdays and from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Sundays. I hope you find yourself in Savannah again... More

We took our daughter (and son) to the Juliette Gordon Low birthplace home in Savannah in June 2014, mainly because my daughter is a Girl Scout. But the home/museum can be greatly appreciated by those with no ties at all to scouting, especially by those who love a look at historic homes and furnishings. The house is easily located, just...

Absolutely loved this tour. Was a bit skeptical that this would be interesting, but the tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable that even non Girl Scouts will love the tour.
