The estate home - referred to as a "bungalow" is an exquisite and family oriented home, and a delightful 'step back in time'. I highly recommend that you borrow the audio tour unit which describes each room in detail and also let's you hear the voices of some family members recalling fond memories over the years. The construction is truly... More

I was fortunate to be able to visit when the ansel Adams exhibit was showing. An amazing job for a small group. Everyone was focused on the visitors enjoying and learning from the selections

For those unable, time-wise, to linger in each room with its decor evocative of the early 20th century, one could happily just visit each American masterpiece on the walls. I myself was thrilled to find an Elihu Vedder painting upstairs. My visit on a perfect Thanksgiving weekend Friday brought me to the Grant Wood and the American Farm exhibit showcasing... More

The wonderful part about visiting the Reynolda House, besides the excellent American art exhibit and home, is the family history and positive impact it had on the Winston-Salem area. R.J. and Katherine Reynolds used their wealth to create a model living environment, farm, and agriculture educational facility that greatly enhanced the lives of their family, the local farmers, and the...

I have lived an hour and a half from Reynolda for 20 years and had no idea what a gem was tucked away in Winston-Salem. The art museum, which specializes in American art, went hand-in-hand with this amazing home from another American era. A great value on a gorgeous fall day. Be sure to allot enough time so you don't... More

We learned about the history of the shops and the original use of the buildings. We also enjoyed the tour of the house. Definitely worth the time if your in... More

I had heard of Reynolda House but I did not know a lot about it. The house and grounds have been beautifully maintained and are wonderful to explore. Make sure you get a docent, ours was terrific, she made the history of the house come alive. The house and the museum have excellent pieces of American art.

Most of my dates with my boyfriend have been here and besides the beautiful art museum you also get to see the gardens, the walking trails, and all of the shops that are part of Reynolda village. Great for families too!

Fun to go through the Reynolda House again after many years. The history of the Reynolds family is fascinating and the country bungalow RJ built is beautiful as are the gardens.
