  • 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.

  • I LOVED my experience! We had Curtis Richardson as our storyteller and he created such an amazing experience. The way he told the stories--with facial expressions and gestures-- really helped me to "see" each character. I especially loved how he changed his voice for them! When he voiced the water buffalo, I could visualize this immense animal, and when he did the hyena I could visualize that too. It reminded me of the Lion King! I absolutely loved that after our story we enjoyed a refreshingly informative tour. I sincerely appreciated our tour guide giving us all the wonderful details about life during the time Harris lived, as well as information regarding the house's cool furniture and architecture. I say "cool" because being in the same house, seeing the same furniture that existed and was used so long ago made me feel as though I had actually time traveled. The Wren's Nest is definitely a wonderful 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.
  • I went here with my siblings and we had such a great time. The story telling was amazing!! My little one was giggling and having so much fun. We came for the Smithsonian museum free museum promotion, but we'll definitely be back!! Thank you for sharing this beautiful experience with us!!
  • 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
