Overview

Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America’s highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.

This place was very beautiful, every detail was done in the fanciest way possible. You weren't allowed to go on the third floor and they were currently working in some parts of the house, what you made the $16 per person feel a little high....More

Wouldn't have been my first choice to see, but it's very interesting to see what the rich Victorian era families thought was beautiful! Every inch of the place is covered with decorations, even sinks and toilets! Impressive!

Tour shouldn't take more than an hour; you would have to check their website for their hours of operation.
