The house is just as stunning from the inside as it is from the outside. Tours begin every 30 minutes from open to close. The tour guides are very nice and well-informed, and willing to answer questions. The plaster work is beautiful, as is the magnificent staircase.

You can see this old home as part of a combination tour with the Heyward-Washington House and the Charleston Museum. I recommend doing that, as you basically get one house for free that way. This one is right across from the Charleston Museum. Go to the Manigault first and then go to the Heyward-Washington House. The Manigault House is a... More

Spending a couple days in Charleston I walked and looked at a lot of the old houses. The city is great as they seem to have maintained all their old buildings instead of leveling them. This one is very well maintained and in great shape. Great glimpse into the past.

Nicely located on Meeting Street, the Manigault House is chock-a-bloc with period furniture and accessories, and makes for a very nice hour if the day isn't too hot. Admission is included with the Charleston Museum (across the street) entry price, A niced complement to the lattter's informative displays.

This historic house is an example of Colonial architecture, It has a circular staircase that goes past a chandelier, hanging in the stairwell. The rooms are furnished in the Sheraton period.

Beautifully restored old southern mansion which is just as interesting for what you see on the inside as the information about activities that occurred out in the yard, just steps from the family's home. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastically shared much detailed information about the house and family. Beautiful period furniture, some original to the house, made... More

This house is very well preserved and is filled with such beautiful and historic furniture. It is right across from the Charleston Museum so it was an easy transition. Tours start every half hour.

Massive house, surprisingly smaller than you would imagine. There a many original family pieces, and much history. The guides know just everything and are really interested in communicating their knowledge. The decor and restoration are so well done, it is breathtaking. Really a must-see.
