Such an interesting place. Our guide around the house was most informative. We watched a video before viewing the house which was also helpful. The cemetery was quite moving. All in all is definitely worth going to.

Interesting glimpse into history and the later life of Jefferson Davis. We had young kids with us who were not particularly interested in history, so I breezed through the museum with them (they were fascinated by the funeral wagon and death mask, though). The kids loved feeding the goats and llamas while everyone else finished up in the museum. The tour of the house was led by a docents in period dress, which was cool. You don’t get to walk through much of the house, just into one main entrance hall, taking one step into three rooms off that hall, then onto the back porch for a look into a few more rooms.

took 2 hours to tour this 52 acre former home of Jefferson Davis. This includes a main house where we listened to a 20 minute narrated tour and viewed the various rooms. Also a short walk to the Confederate cemetery where about 700 are buried. The library houses the ticket area, a gift shop and a theater. The schoolhouse presents a short video but most of what was said in the video had been told to us by the tour guide at the main house. They offer golf carts for rent but we did not take advantage of that and walked.

We toured the Museum and Library while waiting for our group tour of the house to begin. Our tour guide was very personable and was very descriptive of the furnishings and the building structure. Jefferson Davis was an interesting historical figure. Definitely worth a few hours of your time.
