As Yankees we were interested in the historical perspective from the Confederate side. Don't visit this house expecting to learn anything new. The "Library" is only a space where there is someone to help you find an ancestor which might be helpful but the rest of the space is suppose to be a "museum" - but there is almost nothing... More

Passed by many times and decided to visit last Summer as we were driving. Wished I would have stopped years ago. What a wonderful place to visit and appreciate. Also enjoyed the Gulf views, gift shop, and informative tour.

Pros * Really enjoyed walking around the grounds. You can actually walk in an area with free roaming farm animals. * The tour guide was knowledge and did a nice job. * The home was was interesting to see. Cons * Home was relatively small, making for a fairly brief tour

Lots of it has been renovated because of Katrina but a must see if you enjoy history. There are golf carts that you can rent on an hourly basis to drive around the... More

Just a wonderful history lesson at Beauvoir! Beautiful grounds, wonderful tour guides, great library, and lots of great items to buy at the gift shop. Even on a very rainy day, Beauvoir was a hit! The only issue we had was the very noisy bird in the gift shop: seriously, it was squawking so loud that it hurt!
