Spent the afternoon here with my wife, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't take the tour, so strolled around at our own leisure, gazing at the art and other artifacts. The gardens are also beautiful. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area. Reynolda Village is also pretty, with some nice stores and more strolling. I... More

Was there for the Ansel Adams exhibit, but also enjoyed touring the house itself. The gracious old home the perfect setting to help one slow down and relax to enjoy whatever interesting exhibit they are offering.

It's especially fun to wander around the Reynolda House and think about what is was like to live there. they offer wonderful shows and it's a real treat at Christmas! there are several restaurants nearby that are quite satisfying. If you love visiting museums and love style an design...make this small surprising treat a stop on your itinerary

Was here in August of 2015; great spot to see if you are interested in great houses and lots of history. I don't imagine everyone would agree with the significance of this property given that it was built on the backs of others.. but, here it is and it is pretty. $14 admission fee pretty steep, but was afforded a...

We have a child in college in Winston-Salem. We have visited Reynolda House twice in the last two years. We enjoyed both visits. All of the staff we encountered were very nice. Most recently, we were there for an Ansel Adams exhibit, which was very good (and may now be over). But my favorite part of the visit was walking... More

Our family love to visit this house and art gallery. A number of times a year they have special showing that always are great for the whole family. The house is also very interesting to walk through.

Reynalda House is very beautiful as well as historical. So interesting how this family was and continues to be such an integral part of Winston Salem and Wake Forest University.
