Stunning yard, a beautiful building. Park centrally and visit a number of other historical sites near. The genealogy center is closed Sunday check f it is open
Not normally open to visitors, it has a great garden area that is so beautiful. Not many places can get close to comparison. Even in the rush of state workers around the gardens I always feel at ease and its normally quite. Great place for pictures.
Visiting on a day when volunteers are showcasing the mansion and other activities is the best way to go. Making a special trip to the mansion gives you limited access to the lower level. Beautiful furnishings and a historic home, but not great for young children unless other activities are happening.
The tour is just 20 to 30 minutes long. It is only the first floor. It is well worth the time. Upon walking thru the front door, we felt that we had definitely stepped back in time. They have done a great job keeping it period correct. You will paintings of all the first ladies of Missouri. Take the time... More
When in Jefferson city you need to swing just South of the Capital and see the Governors mansion. Missouri's capital and mansion is one of the best. There is a nice River overlook below the Governor's mansion where you can see the river and watch the barges.
I am sure it is cleaned regularly but you can just imagine how old and dusty everything is. We have not been in the mansion since they stopped doing the Haunted Halloween tours, but they still do the Christmas tours.
We took a small tour of the Governor's Mansion and had a lot of fun. There is so much history and information there. I never would have guessed it was so interesting. Very beautiful and an awesome place to visit. Everything is restored and very well taken care of. I recommend a visit to the Governor's manson!!
This is a must see if you are from Missouri! The view of the river is also breathtaking.
