My husband, a civil war buff was so excited to visit and we were so disappointed by the neglect and poor condition of the house and the almost new visitors center and Presidential Library. Musuem did not offer explanation of display pieces. Gift store was in shambles, very disorganized with overpriced cheap suvorneers, they had a beautiful, large parrott that... More

We didn't take the house tour (time restraints), but walked the grounds and enjoyed it tremendously. A beautiful property, one can see why Davis chose it. Beautiful views of the ocean. Like the various statues representing the family and Davis. Very nice gift shop.

We went through the library and home You can see that restoration on the home is ongoing. The hand painted ceilings are beautiful. We saw a battle reenactment. Everyone we met was kind and made sure we were aware... More

Begin your visit at the museum which is a work in progress. It is filled with artifacts from the Civil War Era including Davis' Death Mask. A well-appointed gift shop will keep visitors busy. Then walk over to Davis' house taking in the beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico.

This is a good educational field trip. It was not really exciting. It would be beneficial if a guide took visitors around the grounds instead of just showing the house. A guide for the museum would also have been nice.

I am very much a lover of history and this house and museum have many stories to tell. The museum was full of some amazing artifacts and had a lot of very informative videos to watch. The actual home is beautiful and you can see that great care has been taken with it. Definitely something to see if you come... More

This stately Southern mansion is beautiful to see and wonderful to tour. It has been masterfully restored after the damage by Katrina. The two cottages outside were destroyed and now fully restored. The main house looks so good you would know that water was flowing through it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and imparted lost of information on the tour.... More

Makes you feel the rich history of the Biloxi area! We enjoyed the houses and the beautiful library. Interesting to find out about the families that lived there.

This is the last home of the President of the Confederate States of America. It is a reminder of houw people lived in the late 1800's. Lovingly restored after Katrina it is a living Museum and place you must see if on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Be sure to visit the Cemetary.
