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.

Two people are giving a virtual tour in the entrance hall of the White House of the Confederacy. 

There is a man on the left wearing glasses and a face mask holding a iPad on a shoulder rig made for filming, taping a woman on the right who has a brown bob haircut and wearing a red sweater. Behind the two people are two elaborate 19th Century chairs, a side table, and a statue of a Grecian woman holding a tragedy mask.

Virtual House Tours

Thursdays 1:00 PM–2:00PM & Saturdays 4:30 PM–5:30 PM
$10 Per General Admission Login | $8 for ACWM Members

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.

See the entire historic home in a small group, chime in with questions, and invite your household for the price of one ticket!

We are limiting tour sizes to 8 people per slot. Masks must be worn at all times to ensure the safety and health of our visitors and staff.
