I was never a Girl Scout but I love museum houses and so made this a stop during my honeymoon in Savannah. Definitely an interesting house with a great history. Our guide was well versed in Juliette Low's back story and loved taking questions from the group.

Juliette Gordon Low was an impressive woman and it is worth taking the tour to get her story.

Beautiful house but slightly overpriced considering it's just a house tour. The receptionist/front desk lady was very snippy, short, uninformative, and rude. Considering the fact that this house services/and stands for Girl Scouts - this is very off-putting.

The tour guide was informative but it is very Girl Scout and family history-centric. So don't expect an architecturally-interpreted tour. I wanted to visit the other two related houses originally, but decided not to after visiting this one. By no means is this attraction bad though.

Our favorite of the three house tours we took in Savannah. We purchased the three house tour "Pioneers in Preservation" which includes Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace,
Andrew Low House and Isaiah Davenport House. This was our favorite not only because of the beauty of the house and furnishing, but the amount of detail provided by the charming and enthusiastic docent.

Our troop did the house tour, pinning ceremony and a special interest session- Sisters of the Palette.

The house tour was wonderful- we learned a lot about Juliette as a child and about her family. We loved hearing the stories about how precocious she was as a child and about early scouting.

The special interest session was really fun! We got to use watercolor pencils, do engraving, sculpture, and make a portfolio. The session leaders were so nice and wonderful with the girls.

As a whole, the birthplace is staffed with knowledgeable people and runs like clockwork for troops with reservations. They were very, very busy that day and everything ran efficiently- definitely not a leisurely experience but we knew what to expect. I would have liked a little more time in the gift shop as it was busy and hard to navigate.

One tip- take advantage of the bathrooms! They don't allow time to go as a troop during the house tour and many of us waited because we didn't want to miss anything. (use the one in the carriage house where the powerpoint presentation is while you're there!) Before we knew it we were out on the street and had to go one at a time back in through the front door- staff was not happy.

All in all- so worthwhile!

My mom and I took this tour and it was very interesting and I learned a lot about Juliette Gordon Low. The house's furnishings are interesting but not overly nice or awe inspiring. The part I enjoyed about the tour the most was hearing about all the creative things that Juliette Gordon Low did around the house.
