Besides their art collection, Reynolda house and gardens has a rich history of the R.J. Reynolds family and their tobacco empire.

Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern was a unique exhibition because it focused more on O’Keeffe’s persona and wardrobe, and less on her art. We know some people missed seeing more of her beautiful canvases, but we are glad you still made it to see the exhibition...More

Shows how the Top 1% lived in about 1908! Nice that they turned it into a museum. My favorite part was the basement, which was the family play room, with billiards, nightclub, bowling alley, shooting range, covered in-ground pool (on basement level), and more. Be...More

There’s no doubt, the Reynoldses and Babcocks had lots of fun at Reynolda-- and now we all do! We are glad you enjoyed the new app. Thanks for taking time to share your experience.

We visited on a rainy day, but it was still enjoyable to walk around the grounds and through the house. Recommend a stop here if you are in the area, if you like history and/or art.

Reynolda is just as good on rainy days as sunny ones! We like to say that rainy days are great museum days. The bungalow-style architecture lets you watch the rain trickle down, while you’re still warm and cozy in the house!

Reynolda is, indeed, delightful! We are glad you enjoyed to visit. We just debuted our new app, Reynolda Revealed, which allows for a more comprehensive self-guided tour. If you return, we hope you will give the free app a try!
