Step into Maymont's Story

Travel through history at your own pace! Learn more about the origin story of this historic estate — its design inspirations, cultural context and the stories of the people who made it all possible.

Take along a narrated audio tour as you explore this well-preserved example of a Gilded Age ornamental estate built at the turn of the 20th century, all within the complicated story of the New South and Jim Crow.

The collection of self-guided walking tours includes an Architecture Tour, a Historic Garden Tour, several tours of Maymont Mansion — including a family version, a Spanish-language version, a special holiday edition, and a narrated tour of the “In Domestic Service” exhibition on the lower level of the Mansion.
