this is the home of Jefferson Davis which he used during his presidency 1861-1865.
very disappointing. not much history just stories of his family in the house. don't go out of your way to visit.

Everyone in the Richmond area should see this place. Fantastic collection of civil war items. There is so much to learn here.

I recently did the tour and enjoyed learning about the history of the house. The tour guide was very nice and thorough.

I left, however, feeling that I had just listened to a version of history that intentionally softened things in order to counter anything that made the South look bad. In short, I paid close attention to what was said and how it was said. For example, the guide for my tour described Jefferson Davis as a “moderate”. Further, the guide for my tour mentioned how, after being freed, a former slave “chose” to stay with the Davis family. These are but two examples that show how the narrative was shaped and shared.

I did not raise my reactions with the guide during the tour because that would not have been fair to the guide. It was a tour, not a panel discussion.

Final point…. I noticed that gift shop was selling Harriet Tubman magnets. The irony…

So amazing to see and hear the history of this building. Lady who gave us a tour was so nice and Knowledgeable. Love the fact they left it on the spot it was built and built around it.

WOW! Very impressive indeed. We were a bit fearful at first because we saw you had to make reservations on line and in advance but we took a chance and explained we had no internet access and did not know it was a requirement. There were only six people scheduled to tour at the same time as us so we were allowed to join the group. The interior was stunning. The guide was very knowledgeable and he had additional pictures to show us to enhance the tour. This building was probably the highlight of all I visited during my seven days in Virginia.

I really enjoyed this tour. You get to see a decent amount of the house and learn a lot about how the CSA leadership worked and how some of the aspects of the house contributed to their downfall. Very educational as well.

If you only have time to do this of the museum at Historic Tredegar, do this one, because this one actually has so much more that is specific to Richmond.

It was a nice tour. Went through 5 rooms downstairs (including the starting point, the entryway) and 3 rooms upstairs. There was a third floor but we were not allowed up there. There are some benches to sit on along the way inside the house. You have to purchase the tickets online ahead of line for they are by tours only. And you need to arrive there at the latest half an hour early for there’s traffic, construction, and parking is a beast to find. They share the parking structure with the hospital so you’ll need to take your parking ticket in for them to validate it. Despite all that hassle to just get there it’s a great tour to take.

My husband and I went here for a tour of the White House of the Confederacy. We had a small tour group with only about 10 people. The tour guide's name was Anna and she was very knowledgable. Our tour length was about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Jefferson Davis lived in this house during the war with his family and a few slaves. After they moved out, it was a schoolhouse for a number of years and then it's been a museum since the early 1900s. They tried to replicate it as much as possible and even have some originals from some of the people who lived in the house, such as Jefferson Davis' spouse herself. You get a tour through the first floor and second floors where you see the bedrooms, Jefferson Davis' office, dining room, and living room. If you've been to the house in Mount Vernon or in Monticello then it's a similar style - big 1800s house with fancy European decor. There is a free parking available which is right next door and is also hospital parking.

My family took a quick tour of the white house on a whim and our guide was wonderful. He didn't mind all of my questions and even my teen boys enjoyed the tour.

When booking this tour, I wasn't aware how embedded this site is in the ugly, downtown, high rise area of Richmond. I had an address for parking but didn't realize that you enter at the top of an 8 story parking garage that is also used by the hospital. Judging by how crowded the parking garage was, people in Richmond must be very sick. We eventually found the Confederate White House. You check in at a modern visitors' center and wait there or in the courtyard of the house. The tour begins there and proceeds to the front of the house, where you are led to see the first and second floors of the home. I understand that not too long ago the second floor was not open to tourists. It was a great tour and our tour guide, Chuck, was learned and engaging. There were two issues I had with this place.

First, in the spirit of the age, this national monument was been transformed from a mere historical site worthy of preservation into a means by which to push a nasty. ahistorical, biased political narrative. Even its wikipedia page says that its purpose is to "undermine" the "Lost Cause of the Confederacy" which in reality means that they promote a BLM view of history that openly mocks and degrades White Southerners. The book shop mostly consists of titles by black authors dealing with slavery or the African American experience, even by laughably bad authors like Ta-Nahisi Coates. Souvenirs run heavy towards items glorifying the Union cause or that reflect African American concerns. Even the tour guide was ever so careful to refer to slaves as as "enslaved persons" and when relating an incident in which a few house slaves escaped during the confusion caused by a fire, seemed to reflect gleefully that the slaves had set the fire themselves. In other words, "how funny it is that an entire family of White people (not to even think of the other slaves in the house) might have been burned to death" if it meant that a couple of Black people were able to escape to "freedom". Weird.

Secondly, when I bought a few souvenirs after the tour, the cashier mau maued me into rounding up the price to support the museum. I was torn. After all, I wouldn't mind throwing in a few cents to support the preservation of this important place, but on the other hand I felt like I was supporting antifa as well.

In short, I recommend visiting this place. It's well worth it. It's just that it, like much of the country, is in the grip of an insane ideological cult that poisons the experience a bit. Here's hoping the fever will eventually pass.
