Exceptional architectural experience.

This house is quite large and lovely, with many rooms to visit, period decor, and at the time we visited, a multi room display of fashion through the 1920s-1960s.

The house has value as an historical location, however do not expect a luxurious or amazing construction like the ones you see in Europe. Also noted for being a filming location of The Hunger Games (house of President Snow)

We enjoyed seeing the Swan House. The individuals working at the house dress according to the period and that was unexpected. Staircase in the entry is a great place for a photo op. Grounds are exceptional.

Very impressive historic house and property. The house and actors are great! It really feels like you are in a different time. I found the grounds even more impressive. You are free to walk around as you please and there are paths that go all over the place. I didn't have enough time to see everything, but I imagine you... More

A piece of history reflecting the grandeur of a bygone day is preserved in the heart of Atlanta. The architecture and furnishings are candy for the eyes. Wandering the grounds, it is easy to be transformed. Dining or attending an event at the Swan Coach house is a memorable event.

The Swan house is in a complex of other historical buildings and a great museum. It is well worth the trip outside Atlanta. It presents a great display of the fashion and furnishings of the period.

I finally went to the Swan House and was blown away. All the interpreters are in character and are very knowledgeable! The house is beautifully staged at Swan Houses height of popularity. Gives visitors a great sense of how the house looked in the early 20th century.

The Swan House is located a short walk behind the Atlanta History Center and is included in the admission. There are a couple of old cards out front and the house gives you a vivid picture of what living in the 1930's was like. Very interesting.

I always enjoy touring through homes that reveal how people lived in a historical period. This home was typical of my experiences in other preserved homes but made more enjoyable by the costumed guides who remained in character as they answered questions, etc. Nice touch and I bet children would enjoy. Of course, the house itself and furnishings were delightful.

The Swan House & surrounding grounds are jewels tucked neatly off the beaten path. Elegance abounds!
