We paid $16 to go on a tour of this home along with the Nathaniel-Russell home. This was my favorite of the two. The two houses are on opposite sides of the peninsula. The Nathaniel-Russell house is close to the Meeting and Tradd intersection south of Broad. The Aiken-Rhett house is farther up the peninsula in a patchy part of town,
The AR house doesn't look that impressive in photographs, but the yellow stucco is beautiful up close and it has gorgeous piazzas. The rooms are very large with some furniture. I don't think most of the furniture is original to the house but they make sure to ensure they are representing the correct time periods. You get a self-guided audio tour with the AR house and not the Nathaniel House. The audio tour was very interesting. The rooms were larger and you get to see more rooms than with the Nathaniel House.
