Be sure to leave time for the film in the little theater. The lady tour guide was very good too.
I would have like to see a film with the before Katrina pictures, and then, with fast forward photography, I'd like to see the rebuilding process.

Amazing! What a very nice surprise! I had visited Beauvoir many years ago and loved this historical site then. I returned this month to find it well intact even after the devastation of Katrina to this area. Jefferson Davis' home has been completely restored. I could visualize my parents sitting on the front porch of this great house when they visited the grounds in the 1940's. Besides that, it is a great place for anyone who loves history to see how folks lived during Confederate times. On this trip, I also visited the library. Good historical information for history lovers and genealogist looking for ancestry information. Very interesting books about the Confederate period can be purchased in the Beauvoir Gift Shop. This Museum, House and Library tell a true story of the life and times of all who lived during this historical period that changed America!

My husband is a true southern man so this was a must. The tour of the family home is very interesting and well worth the time and cost. The restoration from Katrina is unbelievable.

History buffs and anyone interested in learning more about Jefferson Davis will love this place. Majestic antebellum mansion and grounds plus fantastic museum depicting life and times of this Confederate president. Right down the road from the Biloxi VC, making these two facilities a great way to spend a day learning about Biloxi and the old south.
