Absolutely Enjoyable!
Mar 2021 • Solo
If you love history, you will love a tour at this mansion! Tours are hourly, and their website is updated with special events. The docent did an excellent job providing interesting detail on the home and the original owners. The docent covers a lot from trimming, furniture, floors, window coverings, beds, clothing, social events, to some details of the personal lives of prior inhabitants. I love visiting historic homes when I travel and this one was perfect!

interesting history with a great docent
Feb 2021
This was a lovely mansion with a very interesting history, but our docent (Monica, I believe) made it great. She knew her history, involved us (I'm a Civil War history buff, so she included extra info on Gen. Braxton Bragg) and made the house come alive. Definitely worth a visit!

Fantastic !
Oct 2019
My wife and I have a hobby of visiting antebellum plantations. We found this treasure in Mobile to be out of the ordinary in beauty. The tour guide was great - I think she is a walking text book who had the complete knowledge of this beautiful home. The outside architecture and columns are exceptionally beautiful. The surrounding grounds are also beautiful. Take time for a very pleasant stroll through the grounds. The interior had furnishings that are remarkably beautiful. If you are in Mobile, DO NOT miss this beautiful mansion.

'Southern Charm'
Sep 2019
When in Mobile you have to check out the mansion. All of the tour guides are very knowledgeable, and the history of the house will amaze you. the tours only take an hour and after that you also can walk the grounds and view the property. the price is right and it is a way to the past history of Mobile. check out the web page for price, and have a great tour at Bragg Mitchell Mansion.

The epitome of the old Southern mansions.
Oct 2019
It is outstanding from your first look from outside with the magnificent old oaks trees to the amazing pillars surrounding the front veranda. Entering the front doors really takes you back in time.From the winding staircase leading up to the second floor to the "heart pine" floors and woodwork. It is open to the public for a small fee, very worth it. You may tour from top to bottom.

Wonderful tour and beautiful mansion!
Oct 2019 • Family
My family and I had the best tour. The tour guide was wonderful! She told us so many interesting facts about the mansion, and we loved seeing all the different rooms and hearing about the history. Even our young child was engaged in the tour, and that’s a rare event. I highly recommend that you make this part of your visit to Mobile. It’s a must see!

Canopied by a grove of century-old oaks and furnished with fine antiques and crystal chandeliers, the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion offers a rare glimpse of life in the Old South. When it was built in 1855, the house was the center of the lively social life of the thriving cotton port of Mobile, Alabama. Today, the home is one of the most photographed buildings in Mobile and an architectural icon of the city. Guided tours are offered Tuesday - Friday, 10AM to 4PM (last tour at 3PM), on-the-hour. Closed for tours on weekends and major holidays.

The grounds, the home, the contents are stunning and worth your time for a visit.
My only complaint is that a docent needs to be knowledgeable and articulate and not flippant in their repertoire. It sets the tone for a guided tour. Start off on the wrong foot it taints the tour and this historical site deserves the best representative.

Thank you for your review. We enjoy sharing this wonderful mansion with everyone. While we regret your experience with our docent, we appreciate your comments and will certainly take note. Most of our docents are extremely knowledgeable, and have worked at the Mansion for many years. If you have an opportunity, please see the latest issue of ALABAMA HERITAGE MAGAZINE. One of our docents wrote the article for this 12-page spread on the Bragg-Mitchell Mansion. She, not only works at the Bragg-Mitchell, but teaches online courses in history. In her spare time, she researches interesting subjects for various historical publications. Again, thank you for taking the time to comment on the Mansion. We hope you will visit with us again!

A fun place to visit to remember the old Southern charm. Spend some time in the garden, they do a good job keeping it up.
