  • This is a most interesting attraction, slightly off the main stream but well worth the trip. The guides and storyteller were extremely knowledgeable contributing to the experience. 
  • This was an interesting find in the historic West End neighborhood. The tour cost $5 and lasted for roughly 15 minutes. The tour is self guided with volunteers available to answer questions. It was great seeing a home built in the 1800's and seeing the home of a literary pioneer. All of the home is nit available to tour however what is available I found it to be sufficient. I would recommend this tour if you are in the area.
  • Beautiful house museum that remains as one of Atlanta's hidden gems. Bring your children for story time and a tour of the home of the creator of Brer Fox, Brer Rabbit, and the tortoise.
  • Be sure to go for storytelling on Saturdays
  • Awesome place
  • I went there, when I was in elementary school. That was in the mid 90's. My great Grandmother use to tell me the stories of Uncle Remus, and Brer Rabbit. It's been over ten years since I've been to The Wren's House. I'd love to go back and show my daughter.
