“History and Beauty”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon (or part of) at this museum. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. You get to tour 2 houses. The first is the oldest and has lots more interesting details. The grounds overlook the water. It was very relaxing. Well worth your time if you enjoy history of old houses and decorative furnishings.

“Many fine antiques”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Our guide was very good, and patient with our many questions. It's a beautiful setting, and the house is filled with beautiful things.

“Historic and Interesting”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We visited the home during our first week in Georgetown. We were able to learn a great deal about the background of the home, the families and the history of the area. The tour guide was new but well briefed. We were able to ask questions and have them answered thoroughly. There is also an excellent gift store on the Property. Enjoy your visit.

“Great tour, very interesting.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

My husband went to play golf at Wedgefield Plantation so I went to Georgetown nearby. The Kaminski House is in the Historic downtown district. The tour guide Diane was a delightful lady that really knows the history of the house. It isn't a giant plantation house but the antiques inside are beautiful and you get to see the house next door too. Nice way to spend the morning.

“Beautiful historic home and museum”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Excellent tour of an historic home on the waterfront in Georgetown. We had a fairly knowledgeable guide. This home was right across the street from our B&B.
