Beauvoir is a great place to visit. I have been to Beauvoir several times throughout the years. My most recent trip a few months ago made me realize that it was my first post Katrina visit. While a lot has changed, the restoration of the main house and surrounding property was quite well done. When you get to Beauvoir, you... More

We enjoyed the plantation house with original furniture. It is a large plantation, so rent the golf cart and enjoy the grounds. Also, drive it over to the Confederate cemetery. Nice way to spend the afternoon.

My kids really enjoyed the tour as well as myself. The staff was very informative and the gift chop had something for everyone. We liked walking around the confederate cemetery also.

Great place for history buffs, the museum is wonderful and worth the time. The film they show is a bit dated but still worth a watch. Fall Muster is a must. Stay in touch with the website to keep up to date on events they have going on...

We pulled into the property to face road alert cones in no special order. My husband drove around them. An irate woman burst out of the sentry box and proceeded to speak to us in a rude and confrontational manner. I had wanted to see Beauvoir --but we drove back out--astounded by this woman's behaviour. Whoever is running this place... More

The tour was enhanced by our great tour guide Mr. Shelton. He was so interesting and fun with his historical facts and quizzes. The house is very nice and worth seeing for viewing the period. Not really anything too significant on Jefferson Davis. Museum was nice and grounds lovely. Overall a good value and something you should see when in... More

I had visited Beauvoir 20 years ago, and was curious about how the home had survived hurricane Katrina. The restoration of the home was amazing, a special thanks should go to the craftsmanship that went into the restoration. A must see to experience what life was like during that period in time.

This historic building is more suited for adults with interest in history. Confederate President Jefferson Davis home and later Confederate Veterans home. Restored to Davis' era after Hurricane Katrina. Golf carts available for touring cementary, gardens and other sights of 52 acre home. Reasonably priced.
