Beauvoir - Jefferson Davis Home & Presidential Library Tour

26 ratings
Travel back in time and visit Beauvoir! Take a guided tour of the Jefferson Davis home, library, museum, and cemetery....
Our transaction with TripShock was seemless. The tour(by Rob) was very informative and historic. He read our groups interest very well and the stories that went with the items made it so much more interesting...seriously he was fabulous! Seeing the house is a must. Definitely worth the trip and was a highlight of ours. Gift shop is very well stocked with cookbooks, books, novelties, poster prints of documents, pins, patches, shirts, something for everyone. Put it on your must do list if you want to learn the history of the area.
The tour and tour guide was excellent. I believe his name was Robin. I loved visiting The Confederate Cemetery.
Southern history could not be complete without the last home of Jefferson Davis included. The house tour guide really knew her stuff and the couple who showed us around the museum were beyond warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable. Planning another trip back in the fall. Only negative comment I could make was the times listed on the web weren't accurate.

Jefferson Davis' Coach was the most Exquisite Piece I've ever Seen

How did you discover this activity?

We used Google to look up Civil War history because we were passing through the area.

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

We booked same day as we visited.

Why did you choose this activity?

We are history buffs and wanted to see the house and learn more about the president of the Confederate states.

How did you get to the activity location?

We drove from the hotel we stayed at in Gulfport, which was just a few miles away. It was very easy access.

What was your experience with the activity’s staff?

The tour guide was very well-educated in the history. It was a 30-minute tour and then we were able to visit the library, museum, and grounds at our leisure.

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

We enjoyed all of it, but my favorite part was the cemetery at the back of the property, and the tribute paid to the soldiers laid to rest there.

There were educational videos about the history, artifacts, and more. The grounds face the Gulf, which makes for a spectacular view from the porch.

The house is enriched in history, and the grounds take you back to that place and time.

The coach that Jefferson Davis was carried in for his funeral is the most exquisite piece I’ve ever seen.

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

Yes, this tour has something for everyone including videos and artifacts. The grounds have several smaller buildings and lots of area for kids.

There is also a picnic area or you can go to across the street at the beach.
