Nice little house tour plus they had some cool stuff in their collection. Low key, they let you wander around without bugging you. Stroll out to the cemetery out back, worth the 2 minute walk.

This is the history of Jefferson Davis home--the president of Confederacy- and his Presidential Library.The tour was extremely interesting with great information on the civil war in the south. Also its restoration after "Katerina" was remarkable! Watch the videos too.

Admission includes the Jefferson Davis home and Presidential Library. You do a self guided tour of the library and the grounds. You take a guided tour through the home. There are also several different movies you can watch if you are interested.

Good historical information on the Davis family. Must see for those interested in civil war period. Library and gift shop housed together with the museum. Tour of the home is informative but limited.

My friends and I were so thrilled with our tour. The tour guide was friendly and informative, but not boring. The videos and the museum added to the history lesson. I learned some new facts about Jefferson Davis that I did not know before.

Wonderful tour guide by the last name of Shelton I believe. Very knowledgeable and has a good presentation manner. The history of the house itself is very interesting. 2 owners before Jefferson Davis, each giving the home it's flavor. The house tour doesn't take long,...More
