At least on this day, the Mansion was not open to the public. You can get a good look at the outside from two sides and look up from a garden at a third. The Mansion is a short walk from the capitol.

I took some out of country family to tour the Mansion. The tour was okay, nothing to write home about. Only allowed on the main floor, It is historic but nothing of real interest on the first floor

There are tours by a docent inside of the building. It's decorated for holidays always. The grounds are beautiful and used for weddings, and photos of kids in prom dresses and more.

I noticed that one reviewer warned that you have to have reservations, which was true several years ago....but small groups are able to "just walk in" at this time.
