Visited using a three day passport. I recommend getting the passport especially if you want to see the plantations. The house is quite close to the visitor center on Meeting Street. Very limited air conditioning. The guided tour was informative and the architecture was very interesting. Recommended!

We purchased a package that allows access to the Charleston museum, the Joseph Manigault house and the Heyword-Washington house. This house and family have a lot of history in the Charleston area. Be forewarned that there is only one room in the house that is air conditioned. The tour lasts a half of an hour and is very informative. The... More

Although no architectural gem from the outside, the guided tour is thorough and the knowledgeable guides provide valuable insight into life in 19th century Charleston, despite dwelling a little too much on the, albeit interesting artefacts on display.

While the home does have some pretty features such as delicate carvings on the fireplaces as well as matching opposite architecture, it is not opulent or spectacular in design. Of more interest are the stories told by the tour guide which touch on the history of the house, the family members who resided within its walls and what happened to... More

We enjoyed the tour through this home. It is a worthwhile tour but is pretty expensive as is the case with a lot of Charleston. We bought the combination ticket with the Heyward house which helped. They were both interesting houses.

I enjoyed this tour the best and found the architecture most interesting. It has numerous valuable artifacts and all have interesting stories. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly and did an outstanding job. I purchased a multiple site ticket and saved money. Well worth the price.

The house and furnishings are beautiful. Period pieces, many original to the house. Overall a worthwhile tour. A warning, only one room has a/c.

This house is loaded with some very unique moldings and art work. Lots of history and good docents make this a must see for those who like the stories that go along with the building.
