  • We missed the guided tours and so we took the free app self guided tour. But only the interior of the main building/gift shop was accessible. Would have liked to see inside the other houses on the tour.
  • This is a great place to learn about what our country was founded on. Awesome early architecture. They do a great job presenting historical relevance of all people who resided here. The Huguenot is just one piece of this complex puzzle.
  • Cool place to see while in the area. Lots of interesting facts and details. It's really cool how they preserve and maintain the buildings and the area.
  • Our guide, Tom did a nice job of explaining the history, architecture and some of the reconstruction. We only entered one building and a re-created church. I was expecting more of a living museum with costumed staff-perhaps on the weekend. Interesting and worth stopping in, if you’re in the area.
  • I love American history. Missed being able to see the inside of the houses. I was told that's to preserve them. Preserve them for who?
