The Owens-Thomas House is considered by architectural historians to be one of the finest examples of English Regency architecture in America. Inspired by classical antiquity, this style of architecture takes its name from England’s King George IV, who ruled as Prince Regent from 1811 to 1820.
One ticket is good for 3 museums ! All 3 are excellent.
One of the older houses I've been in. The 200 year old plumbing is fascinating
This is a Blue Star museum, free to military in the summer.
Instead of $15 for just the Owens-Thomas House, pay $20 and get a pass for the Owens-Thomas House, the Jepson Center, and the Telfair Academy. You have up to a week to use all three (1 visit each).
Students (K through college) can get a Telfair museum pass (this house + two more) for just $5. Bring your ID!
