  • The gentleman working here was super nice. It was busy and he was all by himself, yet he made each person feel special. He gave the kids a piece of candy and even a bottle of water. Very well kept museum with a really nice display in the upstairs room. It's worth taking the time to see this historic building.
  • It was our first time to really visit Alabama and spend a few days here. This historic building is certainly worth stopping and checking out. It is pretty small and the staff are amazing. This museum is very well kept and the entire surrounding area was very cool to check out.
  • Great museum. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. An amazing piece of history from a dark chapter of American history when the United States invaded and attacked a foreign nation. A nation that was formed for similar reasons as the United States was formed. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal...among these (rights) are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.....whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People...to abolish it, and to institute new Government"
  • Very proud to see that in Alabama we can still enjoy our history. The house and decor are amazing. The staff here is very helpful and knowledgeable.
  • The First White House of the Confederacy provides everyone with a intimate look into the First and only Family of the Confederacy. With articles owned by the Jefferson family, there is a rich and detailed history to see in every room. The House has been kept up quite well and the staff are friendly and happy to answer any questions. Regardless of your politics, this is an important place to visit. Remembering places like this house and people who dwelt in them reminds of of our past and the people involved. Take the time to visit the house if you find yourself in Montgomery. Admission is free and the gift store does take debit and credit cards along with cash.
