Was very underwhelmed with the downtown area and wasn’t sure what to make of this landmark. It wasn’t clear if you could go in or really what was going on.

We enjoyed our visit. The period pieces were fascinating. The lady on duty gave an excellent talk, and and she was quite helpful in answering questions about the area.
Don't miss this stop.

It's worth your time. Our docent, Diane, was very knowledgeable not only with Williams home, but history of Columbus providing for a great time during our stay.

Nice Tour

I enjoyed my tour of the Tennessee Williams Welcome Center. The tour guide was good and I enjoyed enriching my knowledge of Tennessee Williams as a playwright. In addition the tour guide volunteered to make us appts to tour other homes in the area as well. The majority of the antebellum homes are private residences so appts are necessary which requires special planning. I had come to the museum the day before and it was closed early so I would recommend calling ahead so that you don't make a special trip out.

Closed early with no notice or explanation

We unfortunately did not get to tour the house, because even though it was supposed to be open till 5, it closed at 2:30 for some event elsewhere in the town celebrating Williams. Which would’ve been okay if they only made an effort to inform the public about the change of hours online. We came to Columbus especially to visit the house.
Even when we got there, it wasn’t clear WHY it closed early (there was only one sign on the grass), and it was only thanks to a lady sitting on the porch that we learned why it was closed early. In any case, if you’re doing events celebrating Williams, wouldn’t it make more sense NOT to close the welcome center and house?

We stopped by just to check out the place we had some time to kill. The lady that gave us the tour was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the history. So old memorabilia, and year dated items. Worth the stop.

Such a nice visit to an interesting place lead by a lovely lady. We toured with our three grandchildren and the charming lady made our visit fascinating to them. Even told us other places to visit in the area such as the "Friendship Cemetery".
