Interesting if you like antiques and architecture. No mention of Jim Williams’ trial or murder in the house by the tour guide. Just showed a few photos of the filming. He asked if anyone had questions, waited 5 seconds and then said thanks for coming...More

"Midnight in the Garden....." prompted us to book a visit to this house before we even left Scotland and we were not disappointed. The house and it's furnishings are wonderful and we would recommend it to visitors of Savannah

Not only will you see how gorgeous this house is you will see aand hear things about the movie. Most people in Savannah would rather forget it since it is not something they want to be known for but the house is beautiful

We were so excited to tour this house but it was a complete waste of time and money. Our guide was very friendly, but we couldn't talk about the murder. If you want to learn about the murder, forget it. If you want to pay...More

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