If you're going to the museum, you should definitely add this house onto your ticket. It's right across from the museum, and it's not only gorgeous but also gives you a taste of life back in earlier times.

Conveniently located near the Visitor Center this home is restored to show life in the South in the 1800's for the well to do. The home was built in the early 1800's and is decorated accordingly. Our guide was knowledgeable and presented the home's history accordingly.

We toured with a group of 40 guests. Everyone enjoyed the tour and the narration by our guide. It gave us a feeling of what it was like to live in a mansion in the early 1800's. My wife and I had previously toured the home and we put it on our itinerary when we brought our group.

The Manigault House is a must see for a window back to the pre-war south. The house and grounds are beautiful and the architecture is amazing. The museum has done wonderful job restoring this home to its former glory.

Visited using a three day passport. I recommend getting the passport especially if you want to see the plantations. The house is quite close to the visitor center on Meeting Street. Very limited air conditioning. The guided tour was informative and the architecture was very interesting. Recommended!

We purchased a package that allows access to the Charleston museum, the Joseph Manigault house and the Heyword-Washington house. This house and family have a lot of history in the Charleston area. Be forewarned that there is only one room in the house that is air conditioned. The tour lasts a half of an hour and is very informative. The... More

Although no architectural gem from the outside, the guided tour is thorough and the knowledgeable guides provide valuable insight into life in 19th century Charleston, despite dwelling a little too much on the, albeit interesting artefacts on display.
