We went to see the house of confederacy but they were relocating it. It is a lovely place but got crowded out by the hospitals around it. Not sure why they didn’t leave a little more room for it.

Lovely home preserved, full of personal family and other historical items. Occupied by the Union and Confederate . Great tour guide who provided interesting facts.

The closing of the Museum of the Confederacy on 9/30 does detract from the appeal. The tour was still very good and there is a well stocked gift shop. If you’re in downtown Richmond, it’s definitely worth your time. Combination tickets for the MOC at Tredegar are available.

We enjoyed our tour of the White House, particularly the original pieces that were on display. They did a nice job restoring the building.

Fascinating to visit Jefferson Davis' home during the Civil War. We learned a great deal about him and his family. The site is somewhat overwhelmed by the adjacent medical community and not easy to find but worth the effort. The nearby Confederate Museum was closed as it is being relocated to a larger, more accessible site on the river.

This was the home of the Confederate States of America’s one and only President Jefferson Davis and his family. It was one of the most opulent and lovely homes of the period that I’ve visited. The spiral staircase and oval entry hall were gorgeous. The decor was stunning. Loved this house. We were not allowed to see the third floor, but I would’ve loved to have seen it, too.

This is in such a WEIRD location - like tucked into the VCU hospital complex. Park in the hospital parking garage and take your ticket to have it validated when you get your ticket. You will literally take the elevator into the hospital, then walk outside to the site.

Combine your ticket with the civil war museum to save money. Though I liked this much better than the museum.

The tour of the house was great. I can't remember her name, but our tour guide was fantastic. She was able to recall many stories about the Davis family and their contemporaries upon request. Aside from the floor coverings and wallpaper the home is almost completely period correct, with a lot of the furnishings being original to the home. The building behind the house was unavailable as that part of the museum is being relocated, but the cost of admission is worth the trip if only to see the home itself.

+ Guided visit explains the building, the way of live at that century and the role played by this house during the war

+ Adjacent museum is worth visiting. It can take 1 hour

This was a terrific tour of the
home Jefferson Davis lived in during the Civil War. Our guide was great. She anticipated our questions. You can take pictures. You do need to be able to climb stairs for this. Not good for small kids. Takes about 45 min. Well worth it. Parking close by. Shutters are because they need renovating

Visited the confederate White House. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Very interesting part of U.S. history was explained in detail.
