We were in town for the beach etc. had no idea that Beauvoir existed.
The house is very striking. Excellent engineering and gorgeous aesthetics.
The grounds are well maintained. The property is stunning.

Before you tour, you should take some advice from 8-ball in Platoon. “Free your mind, your a$$ will follow. Please be open to how the man lived his life post war. You can only live in the time you’re born into, just like we are.

The tour was very informative. The guide knew his facts but was very engaging as well.

There are many period artifacts. It is an elegantly displayed museum. I did not see many authentic pieces in the library but they may have been stored.

This is a great chance to look at a beautiful old home and discover some Confederate history. The cemetery is a beautiful place dedicated to the fallen soldiers of the south. The grounds are really nice. The library is also quite fascinating. Highly recommend.

The main picture doesn’t do this justice! I was expecting a small house but it’s rather large and the estate is HUGE! Out tour guide was Mary and she was the sweetest and kindest. I also loved the lady who checked us in at the gift shop. She was also super sweet.:). If you love history, I would definitely put this on your to do list.

We always enjoy bringing out of town guests to Beauvoir. It has a unique history and is beautiful. We enjoy the museum and gift shop as well.

This is another great attraction here in Biloxi! Lots of history to learn and view. Even if you don't like tours, this one has a short 30 minute presentation and then you get to do the rest on your own.

I've driven past many, many times and always wanted to stop in. I finally did last month, September 2021.

Was not at all what I expected. The house is beautiful, but only access to one floor and could only view the rooms from the hallway.

The outside of the house and yards needs much repair.

We had a wonderful tour guide through the Davis home. Although small, the stories were fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. The cemetery was very interesting and the museum in the library is first rate. I definitely recommend a visit.

My visit to Beauvoir was a wonderful experience. Our tour guide took us around in a golf cart and she thoroughly explained the history of Beauvoir. I found the story of " Polly the Mule" very touching. Also, the graves of the long deceased Confederate soldiers was very somber.Finally, I learned a lot more about Jefferson Davis and I have a much better understanding of the South's perspective on the Civil War. I would highly recommend a visit to Beauvoir, as history needs to be respected and understood, and not white-washed by hysterical hypochondriacs of history.

Not until after researching the trip, making the trip to Biloxi, and paying the entrance fee and making my way to the house, did I learn that most of the house was not avaialable for tour due to reburbishment. Let's be fair and be up-front with the facts. The tour director talked for about 12 minutes, much of which was hard to believe and just not factual. I, and the only other couple that attendded, were very disappointed and left the house disgusted. Check it out and ask the "right" questions before going.
