We came a few years ago and didn’t want to pay the admission or take the time to visit. This trip we made time and I’m so glad we did. This was the former home of R.J. Reynolds and it is now a home/art museum. The Black is Beautiful exhibition in the modern wing of the museum was very good. The home tour is self-guided, but there are descriptions for each room, placards next to the art and docents (Don was able to answer every question we had) in every room. We spent about two hours total just going through both art spaces. There are walking trails around the museum that you can access with paying admission. But by all means pay the admission to tour this beautiful home.

I love going thru historical people's homes. This mansion was spectacular. I had no idea what people in the early 1900's. There were people stationed in different parts of the house giving all kinds of information on the owners of the home and their backgounds. The outside of the house wasn't very impressive as the shutters were quite ragged, but WOW the inside of the house was amazing ESPECIALLY the basement.. Don't miss the basement. There is also an art gallery on the opposite side of the mansion that you can go thru after touring the home. I'm not to impressed with art, so I will not comment on that, but please do not miss this house

I was expecting an art gallery inside an historic home, but this was way better than that. The mansion is decorated as it would have been when the Reynolds family lived there, and there are interesting artworks throughout the home. I thoroughly enjoyed walking through the home and imagining what it would have been like to live there, and learning about the family. I was lucky to hear the organ play when I arrived. Fabulous!

The ever changing exhibitions bring us back plus changes in the art displayed in the house. We took a visiting friend and were not disappointed. We saw the Cross Pollination exhibit just before it left. Beautiful art amazingly displayed. Then on to the house. Many changes since we last visited and this time we were allowed to take photos. They have a lovely small gift shop if you are looking for something special. I am sure we will go back!!

Reynolda House Museum of American Art was so positive, I procrastinated on writing a review. I could easily compose several pages. The bottom line is, if you enjoy house museums, art galleries and beautiful gardens this is the place for you. The house itself is four stories and you can see the basement up to the attic. The basement is impressive with a bowling alley, pool and cocktail lounge. There is elevator access to each level. Docents are available, though the tour is self-guided at your pace. Not only is the home beautiful, but the history of the people who lived there very interesting. When we visited the special exhibit in the art museum was very impressive. We spent an entire hour there. We also visited the greenhouse and gardens. There is a walking path or you can drive. I was able to get around most of the gardens using a walker, and was very happy I did not have to miss anything.

This home was an awesome place to visit and imagine how this family lived and the things they enjoyed. The home is beautiful and we were lucky enough to hear the organ play. The Tiffany exhibit was lovely as well. The pool, which I think was refurbished, was beautiful. Beautiful furniture and artwork. Loved seeing the family pictures and correspondence. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Visitors are limited so the visit felt safe in regards to COVID. The staff kept a close eye on how many people were in a room and made sure the number was adhered to. Great place.

This home gives a picture of the family life and the things popular in the day. There is an extensive art collection here as well. I enjoyed the Calder mobile, Ansel Adams photo of Yosemite, and the Sargent. Loved the basement and pool area. What fun! Worth the visit. Allow an hour or so!

Fantastic on many levels. The decor is incredible, understated and instructive. Art world — modern and traditional — make the house even more personal. The grounds are delicious and gardens something else too. Reynolda provides a window into the past — how American barons created country estates that mimicked the British landed gentry. The presentation doesn't shy away from the past's subjugation of black people. Reynolda is a must see!

Covid protocol in place, make a reservation to get in. I highly recommend visiting, lots to see, lots of folks on the trails. We got to see the Tiffany exhibit , spectacular. Easy parking, plus you have the Village to explore and shop, you could spend hours here, plenty of food choices. Please visit.

The mansion is very cool. great antiques, fabulous artwork and a wonderful snapshot of how the barons of industry in that era lived. The family has an interesting story and usually has special exhibits.

A must is to hear the organ play - ask the hosts, (who are in every room to answer your historical questions) when ir is scheduled. The gardens are less than exciting. but the house Makes up for it.
