We visited the Joseph Manigault House in early December, and it had been decorated by the Garden Club of Charleston for the holidays. The guide was quick to point out that the holiday trimmings may have NOT been representative of holiday trimmings in the early 19th century. The home has been restored, and the out buildings (kitchen, laundry, stable) no... More

Go to the Charleston Museum first (already reviewed and part of a tour-combo) to get the best historical overview and to combine tickets for a better price. This house, to me, was the greatest example of how capitalism became consumerism. There is great beauty here but there is also the idea of outdoing one's neighbours, business partners, family, citizens, and... More

We combined the tour of the Joseph Manigault house with the museum across the street. Doing this gave us a break on the ticket prices. WE did the museum first, which really laid a good foundation for the house tour. Our tour guide was knowledgable and passionate about her subject. She had searched the family diaries to get interesting details... More

This home was designed by the owner's brother who was a "gentleman" architect of the period. Home is furnished in the period it was built. During December each year it is decorated by the Gdn Club of Charleston and is a great time to revisit.

Beautifully restored house that gives you an impression of antebellum life in Charleston. Too bad the docents couldn't project any interest at all. Fortunately, the house speaks for itself.

If you're going to the museum, you should definitely add this house onto your ticket. It's right across from the museum, and it's not only gorgeous but also gives you a taste of life back in earlier times.

Conveniently located near the Visitor Center this home is restored to show life in the South in the 1800's for the well to do. The home was built in the early 1800's and is decorated accordingly. Our guide was knowledgeable and presented the home's history accordingly.

We toured with a group of 40 guests. Everyone enjoyed the tour and the narration by our guide. It gave us a feeling of what it was like to live in a mansion in the early 1800's. My wife and I had previously toured the home and we put it on our itinerary when we brought our group.

This is another of the very lovely period preserved stately homes in Charleston. Tickets required, but can be at a discount when purchased with others at the Visitor's Center. Guided tour.

The Manigault House is a must see for a window back to the pre-war south. The house and grounds are beautiful and the architecture is amazing. The museum has done wonderful job restoring this home to its former glory.
