Open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 until 4:00. Tours offered at 11:00, 1:00, and 2:30. Tickets available in the Tivoli High House.
Tour guides really know their stuff! It was great to learn about the history of Pensacola through all of the different time periods, and I went on a Saturday so they were cooking in the kitchen! The tickets are good for seven days, I think, and you can take a self guided tour of the museums and a few of the smaller houses. Very interesting!
