  • One of Charlestons historical treasures. The oldest house still standing. Filled with antique furniture and decor. Architecture is true to era. Guides are very knowledgeable. The outside gardens and kitchens are very interesting. Worth the trip
  • This house doesn't give you any history of the people who lived there. They were plantation owners and one of them signed the declaration of independence. Oh, and george Washington stayed in their house for a week. The rest that they tell you about is the furniture. That's it. It's not a bad place to visit, but for the price I would skip it.
  • Informative tour of an ancestor's home! Good overview of property and furnishings from the period. Enjoyed the garden very much.
  • Great house and tour guides offering many unique insights. If you are visiting Charleston, the house tours in Charleston are well worth the time and money. Put at the top of your list of to dos!
  • This place was awesome. If you want some history, you need to visit. To actually stand in the same room the George Washington stayed in is remarkable. The house is in wonderful shape, the museum has done a great job to restore a piece of history.
