The tour for girl scouts starts with a powerpoint presentation, reviewing all the things about Juliet Gordon Lowe that we tell them during troop meetings. We also tried on some of the clothes she would have worn in her time period, and they learned about some of the activities she would have done, how she would have lived without electricity,... More

Juliette seemed to be before her time. The guide was very knowledgable and the house was beautiful. I could see her sliding down that bannister daily and laughing all the way.

We traveled over 1000+ miles to see this and it was well worth it! Though the tour was a little short to us, it was very informative with a wonderful and friendly staff!

Visited this home with my wife and daughter (both former Girl Scouts) and we had a wonderful time. We waited about ten minutes for a tour to start, then headed up into the home. The tour guide was young but very knowledgeable and she covered all the details about each room. She also related the history of the home as... More

I was in the Girl Scouts as a girl so this place was especially special to me. Wonderful tour of the home and lots of info about the founder of girls scouts. You can see all the arts and crafts she did and what a talented person she was! Special discount for active Girl Scouts.

If you like old southern homes, and were a Girl Scout, then this tour is for you! Interesting history, family history too, and our guide was really excellent. Young male.
