If you can make this museum tour, you really should. The tour as well as the gift shop area are all part of the history. Our guide was amazing. He covered everything you can think of and fielded tons of questions. Excellent.

This was rehabbed and decorated by a very successful art dealer and interior designer, so it interior is incredible. Of course, there is a lot of history as described in the popular novel.

It was really cool to go inside and see where they had shot screens in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. The house has a really interesting history. The only down side is you aren’t allowed to take photos and you...More

This tour showed the garden and a few downstairs rooms. Some good information about the real Jim Williams and his family, but not worth the price of admission. The gift shop was a terrible selection of odds and ends. Save your money and take another...More

Best part of this tour is learning abut Jim Williams and all he did to save as many old historical mansions as he could in Savannah. You see the 1st floor only on the tour, it is gorgeous, but likely similar to the many homes...More

Mercer Williams House Museum is a MUST... a true museum, not just a restored mansion. Jim Williams made lasting treasures all through this beautiful home. It is a MUST DO on your tour list.

Took the tour because of the "Book" and outside of that if you don't know anything about it, the house is very fascinating with the art and other things collected by Jim Williams and the architecture.

I don't understand why some of these places won't let you take photos. It's not like we had a DSLR and set up to take professional photos. The tour was ok. It think it was overpriced for what you got. They are clearly banking on...More

Also...I was there Thursday, June 13, 2019. An elderly gentleman, long time resident of Savannah, was the tour guide. He is fabulous! Ask him anything about Savannah history or the Mercer house history - he knows it all!

There is only a guided tour. Parking can be tight in the city, so I would recommend Uber and/or walking.
