Amazing experience, an absolutely breathtaking plantation in the heart of Murfreesboro. I felt transported back in the antebellum period. We really enjoyed the tour the tour of the plantation and learned a lot about how people lived before and after the Civil War. This tour is a must for anybody who wants to learn a little bit about the history... More

Oaklands is a beautifully restored mansion loaded with history. Tour guides know the house, the families, the history and the artifacts- no questions went unanswered. Great period furnishings, many from one of the families that lived there. Well worth the price of admission!

It was a lovely self guided tour. There were a few local historians there explaining each room of the mansion. The grounds were beautiful. We enjoined the walk back in time.

I did not visit the mansion. That will be for the next visit. I am glad that I went to the exhibit. It was lovely to see the gowns through the ages. Some from late 1800's up through now. Some were fancy and some were not. I enjoyed seeing pictures of the bride wearing their gown. Each gown told the... More

Oaklands Mansion is beautifully preserved and furnished with period antiques, some of which are original to the house. My family and I have been several times. Oaklands changes its displays frequently throughout the year (it decorates as it would have been for Christmas on the eve of the Civil War, around Halloween, the house "goes into mourning" as a Victorian...

This lovely home is a historic jewel. Currently Wedding Gowns across the years on display. A trip here at any time is a great day. Wonderful for history buffs and for children to learn about Murfreesboro.

I have been on the tour three times because we bring out of town visitors to the Mansion. This is a must for history buffs. The staff are pleasant and the tour guides are knowledgeable. I thought the hour tour was a bit pricey and should be dropped to $10. It is shocking to think that not too long ago,... More

This was the most enjoyable home tour ever! Our guide Joe Maloney was not only knows about the property but his attitude is contagious. The tour is good because very few areas are roped off and you can really get a feel for the place. If you like touring old homes don't miss this one if you are ever near... More
