Tour was interesting. Disappointed that most of the furnishings and brick-a-brack only period pieces, not how the home actually looked. Docent was wonderful and very knowledgeable about this house and the other city historical landmarks, as well.

The guided tour takes you through the entire house, except the top floor. Very informative and the staff is extremely knowledgeable about the architecture, the house, its inhabitants and the family. Great for history buffs and the entire family!

We arrived in time for the first tour of the day (10:00), as we read up that only one room of the house is air conditioned. The tour itself was informative and lasted just long enough. Enjoyed hearing about the transformation of the property as it changed owners over the years. Definitely worth it, particularly as part of a $25,... More

This house was included and was a stop of a tour of Charleston. I enjoyed learning about the history of this city. It was interesting to learn that no new construction is allowed in certain parts of the city and everything must be preserved.

Ante-bellum house, done in elegant style. Interesting docent-led tour told us the history of this lovely old home. Used by USO during WWII! The dining room set-up is especially nice.

I hope you get Mary Ann for your tour guide. Having done other house tours, this one was the best in Charleston. Her commentary and descriptions were interesting and informative. She truly cared about the house and its history. FYI - because of fire codes, you won't be able to tour above the second floor of any house, so don't... More

This tour is included on the Charleston Bus Tour. It is a magnificent structure and easily accessible being across the street from the Visitor's Center. The docents give a great history of the house. Visitors come away with an appreciation for the architecture, the work of the artisans, and the history of the family.

The Joseph Manigault House provides an insight into not only the amazing people and history of Charleston, but also an appreciation for the Historical Society. When one hears how this home has been used over the centuries ... it has been 'restored' so provides a peek into the life of the Manigaults and the gentry of another era.

What a magnificent property, beautifully restored and staged to period. One of our favorite mansions, the spiral staircase is an architectural marvel.
