    Well worth spending several hours here
    Grounds are beautiful, gardens full of ancient plantings, gorgeous old trees. Slave cabins are amazing to walk through and see how they had to live at that time. Historic and the guides are great, especially Vanessa on the From Slavery to Freedom you’re.

    Be prepared for midges!!
    Although beautiful and interesting this is basically a swamp and as such you definitely need to be covered from head to toe in mosquito/midges spray. I have over 20 nasty bites all over!! The guide in the house was very informative but don’t waste money on the nature train as it was basically a bumpy ride through trees seeing the occasional turtle and heron. The gardens must be beautiful in the spring but not many colours in the summer to be honest. Very expensive for what it was too.

    Worth visiting but remember this is partly swamp based so bring your mosquito spray!
    We spent the whole day here starting with the 10.30 nature train ride. In addition to showing us some of the wildlife it gave us a great introduction to the plantation, it’s history, fauna and flora. We then took a wander around the wildlife refuge which was a pleasant attraction before heading out into the gardens. We struggle to describe them as gardens but this may be a cultural difference. I guess we were expecting lots of flower gardens etc. Instead there are various pathways you can walk that take you around the swamps and bridges spread out beyond the house. Even though we had the app downloaded we still found it hard to navigate. It also took us a bit of acclimatisation to understand the idea of walking around areas where alligators n snakes may be present again given our UK background. Eager to eat we popped to the cafe. The food wasn’t too bad but probably a little expensive for what it is compared to other outlets we have been to on this current leg of our 3 month tour. From here we headed into the house at 2 pm and enjoyed hearing about the history of the family and seeing the various rooms. Finally at 3.30 we did the Slavery Tour. The young man was incredibly passionate about his subject matter and we found it really informative. It again extended my knowledge of what life was really like for this generation of people.

    Lovely natural scenery
    We've been to Magnolia Gardens many times over the years and always find it a beautiful place to visit. We still get lost at times in the gardens (more signs would be nice) but always find someone along the way who guides us back to familiar territory. The ancient gardens are my favorite. When we splurge for a tour, it's always with Sharon if she's available. Every tour is different and the things she teaches us is always interesting and cool! The train can be a little bumpy and crowded, but it's always worth it. We like to sit up close to the front so we can see what she's seeing and talking about. Bug spray during the summer is a must. The ponies and Hector have a special place in our hearts and always get a little scratch if they are close by. We look forward to the boat tour opening back up. So if you're looking to enjoy natural surroundings, Magnolia Gardens is a good choice.

    Mixed feelings, improvements needed
    We visited today because it was Grandparents day and we had free admission to the gardens, including tropical conservatory. The conservatory was closed and we were not told that when we purchased our daughters tickets for her and her child. With hit or miss showers in the forecast we probably would not have spent money on tickets or made the effort to go. Also, we were not given a map and it’s a large place with a lot of walking. The QR code required downloading an app which we didn’t care to do. The signage could be improved upon also. The animal area was nice and the walking trails very scenic. However there were mosquitoes and gnats. We should have also been told that when we purchased tickets, as our grandson gets an allergic reaction to the bites.

    Bring Bug Spray
    First, the garden, staff and tour guides were all top notch. We were “ill prepared for” and did not expect the very real need for bug spray. Mosquitoes were thick and bothersome everywhere outside of the house itself which took away from the experience as a whole. The kid inside also enjoyed visiting the Wildlife Center.

    Magnolia madness
    Our family attended our son’s Naval Power School graduation and we decided to visit the famous Magnolia Plantation. We loved the tour of the mansion which Beverly gave us. Her enthusiasm was infectious. We also enjoyed the tram ride where we were fortunate to see gators, turtles swimming in the blackish swamp. We also learned so much about the experience of the life of the enslaved people during the Slavery to Freedom tour. Our family highly recommend visiting.

    A Wonderful 4-hour Experience
    Small bus to the Plantation, guided walking tour thru the gardens, tram ride thru more gardens and tour of the plantation. Well worth the visit and a lot of history. Must be able to walk a bit and stand while touring the plantation, but very enjoyable.
