Great Museum and Historic House

Toured while on the pilgrimage. Well worth the time spent in the museum, and will be back next time we are in Natchez.

A fine early example of the southern antebellum home with a great group of foundation members who look after it. Includes several of the origional out buildings, and a nice collection of interior furnishings. The main staircase is an architecturall treasure in design and woodworking. Nice addition to our tour during the Spring Pilgramage.

The outside of the home needs to be restored. The paint is peeling but the guide told us they just got a grant and they will be able to restore the outside. The guides were the friendliest we encountered out of all the homes we viewed. She were walking in town when one of the guides drove by and honked... More

Pretty house, nice tour guide. Worth seeing the spiral stairs. No original furnishings, but pretty things.

People that love history should definitely tour all the historic homes in Natchez. This home did not disappoint. I loved seeing how families lived during this time period.

It seems that there is always something going on at Auburn. We went to the Christmas open house and we could not have had a better time and the food was great.

This home is in need of some TLC on the outside in particular and placed throughout the tour are bowls for donations. There was no pressure however. I think this could be a showcase with some additional funding. Gift shop, like most others, is lacking.

Auburn has nice architecture to it, interesting things to see inside and fascinating story about the owners. There were three different guides and they were great. A park next door (named after most known house owners - Duncan) is very nice as well

This one we thought was a little strange. You get traded off between 3 different tour guides during the tour. The home is nice, but it's surrounded by a public park so there were some people blasting music. The home is nice, but the docents give too much of their personal opinions. The dark headed lady was nice and showed... More

This home is very pretty but the stairs is what makes this home enjoyable. Auburn has one of the only sets of floating stairs in the US in it.
