A must for history and antique lovers. Tour guide is exceptional with detailed knowledge of the antique furniture, chandeliers and paintings. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil filmed here. Nice and inexpensive gift shop in the carriage house.

If you are a fan of mercer/ Williams then visit by all means to see accurate details. However I found it to be an overpriced tour which did not allow for photographs.

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
