Scheduled Tours

To maintain the health and safety for our visitors and staff, the ACWM is not offering guided tours at the Museum at this time.

A guided tour.

White House of the Confederacy Tour

Join ACWM staff for a guided tour of one of the best places to explore the Civil War and its legacies in microcosm.

Best known as the wartime home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis, tours also explore the experiences of Davis’s family, the free and enslaved servants in the household, and even President Abraham Lincoln.

To ensure the health and safety of both visitors and staff, the majority of the tour will take place outside the House. Visitors will have the opportunity to walk through the rooms on the first floor with a trained guide and take pictures. The walkthrough will conclude in the basement with a Q&A session. 

Tour times are as follows:
10:15 AM–11 AM | 11 AM–11:45 AM | 11:45 AM–12:30 PM | 1:30 PM–2:15 PM | 2:15 PM–3 PM | 3 PM–3:45 PM
We currently do not accept walk-ins for tours of the House. Please secure your ticket ahead of time online here.

We are limiting tour sizes and Masks must be worn at all times to ensure the safety and health of our visitors and staff.
