I have been to the Birthplace before and I admit that as a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts I am not unbiased. But I was really impressed with the most recent updates. Even the elevator addition was done in such a way as not to detract from the historic nature of the house. If you are a Girl Scout it's... More

So glad we visited as this is a wonderfully preserved home with a lot of history. We learned about one of the pioneers of women's equality while enjoying two floors and a beautiful garden.

As a former GS - I was so excited to see the home of the founder of the Ggirl Scouts. Our tour guide was very knowledeable and friendly. Any questions we had she had the answers to. The house although refurbished is truly a home of Southern Royalty. Even if you were not a GS it would be a great... More

Beautiful home with period furnishings. Knowledgable guides. Price might be on the high side, but we were happy to support the organization.

If you have ever been involved in the Girl Scouts, this is a must see. Even if you are not, I recommend it. The docents are well informed and are anxious to answer any questions.

It was wonderful seeing the historic site. Much of the furnishings were original to the family and that was fun. But, I learned SO much about Juliette Gordon Low's life, I'm now a HUGE fan!!

We took a group of scouts to visit the birthplace. This was an interesting and informational tour of a beautiful, historical home. The information about Juliette Gordon Low was fascinating, as well as the additional historical information about Savannah and the Civil War. Alone, the tour of the home was amazing. Many 19th century artifacts were left intact, and everything... More

I wanted to visit this home when we made plans to vacation in Savannah. My husband wasn't as excited about it as I was, but by the time the tour was over he was very glad we did! Mrs. Low was an amazing person. I LOVED the gift shop with the old fashioned paper dolls, Tea sets, and Girl Scout... More

This historic home is a treat for architecture, decor, and history. The house alone is lovely even without the added interest of the Gordon family. For example, I had not know JGL was so artistically talented. The garden is small but pretty. Make sure you see the wrought iron gates JGL made by herself.
