A great little museum in Macon.

A great little museum in Macon. Spent over 3 hours touring the house, and enjoyed every minute of it. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

This tour really makes you step back time, and think about how day to day life might have been (if you were wealthy)

Take the time to visit Hay House and let the ladies take you on the tour of this magnificent home. The history of the house is amazing from the sliding panels that lead to a secret tunnel that goes down to the river that was used during the War Between the States by the Confederates to secretly take their money...

Worth the time and money, Sara our tour guide gave as an hour tour with my wife and myself. Lots of history and being restored to its glory. The view from the top is well worth the extra $4

We're English and took the Behind the Scenes Tour. It was fascinating for us to see how an American, having returned from Europe produced his interpretation of an Italianate mansion. Much of it is faked up, e.g paint effects instead of real stone or wood. The fake marble looks real and the two dimensional piainted panelling really looks as though... More

My guide (I do not recall his name) was great! I started by telling him that I am not from the area so I had absolutely no idea about local history - I didn't know the who, the what, when and where. After the tour, I felt like I had lived in the house with the Johnstons, the Feltons and... More

We visited the Hay House and did the Behind the Scenes Tour! Would recommend this tour to everyone! This place is awesome! So very beautiful and full of history! My husband says it rivals the Biltmore. We plan to return in a few years to see the progress on the floors currently being renovated. I really can't pick a favorite... More

The tour of the Hay House took you back in time to see how the old South money used to live. Guide was excellent and explained the history behind the beautiful home. Home has been beautifully maintained and the staff take pride in working their jobs and passing on the history the home has helped create.

We stopped on our way through the area and were not disappointed. This beautifully restored home is a treasure. Matt, our guide, was gracious and informative. We enjoyed the "modern conveniences " that were built into the house. The wind tunnel and wine cellar under the front steps were very interesting. Supporting these attractions will ensure they remain around for... More
