The tour here is pretty thorough. You will learn quite a bit about Welty, whether you are familiar with her work or not. We were the only ones on our tour, so it was extra special. The house is almost just the way she left it, so you can see her stacks of books and papers, and even the pigeon-hole... 更多
I have been a huge fan of Eudor Welty since reading one of her stories in a textbook in high school. Visiting her house and museum was a dream come true. There is a museum beside the house, which was free to visit. The garden behind the house was also free. A tour of the house was very inexpensive. The... 更多
What a beautiful environment Eudora had in which to write her southern-charming-books and stories! Eudora's house is a must to see. It's not often you get to "step into" a place where so many stories and books were written. Inspiring.
It's easy to believe Eudora Welty has just stepped out for a moment - her house looks lived in and is such a reflection of who she was. The books on every surface, the typewriter by the window - this is a home not a museum and it is fascinating to anyone who knows Ms Welty's work.
I really didn’t know much about this talented writer, photographer and interesting woman. I think we made a reservation a month or so in advance. You buy your tickets at the visitor center next to the home, which also houses a gift shop and small museum. Then you visit the home, which looks pretty much as Eudora left it when... 更多
This is normally closed on Sunday, but I happened there when they were having an event so I was able to tour the home. It is filled with many of the original items belong to Eudora, including TONS of books! The awards she won are in the visitor center next door along with a wonderful photo display. I was not... 更多
We had no specific plans for our one-day stop in Jackson, and after reading some of the other reviews we decided to give this tour a try, and we are so glad we did. The tour is short enough to keep younger kids' attention without tiring them, but long enough to go into detail about this fascinating woman's life. Loved... 更多
As opposed to a quick thirty minute standard tour, you'll love your time at Eudora Welty's house. We had a great guide and learned so much about Ms. Welty and the history of Mississippi, our country, and great writing.
I was the only one on the 3pm tour yesterday but I didn't mind it. It starts off with a 20 minute movie about the author then the tour guide takes you through the house and the garden. The staff were very friendly and the whole tour was very interesting. I have no complaints for the tour at all otherthan... 更多
As she spent all of her life here..It is a must see for book lovers like me...The tour started with a short 20 minute film dedicated to her early life and how her roots instilled in her the importance of reading and details. The film also gives you information on her family. I did not know that her father was... 更多
