We only viewed the outside. They have guided tours but require reservations a week or two in advance. Maybe next wime I'm in Albany.

We thought we elected a liberal governor, the scion of a family of honorable leaders. Instead, we found we got something quite different.

Mansion built in 1856, bought by Governor Samuel TIlden (born in my home town!) in 1875 and the official governor's residence ever since. Beautiful Renaissance revival furniture & the artifacts of over 30 governors, several presidents. Worth the tour.

Yes, we were the weirdos standing in the front of the mansion...taking touristy type photos and thinking 'why can't I have a mansion like this?' A security guard (probably came because we were creeping him out) took a photo for us. We headed to the cathedral next (no, not to pray for a mansion)

Beautiful building, great insight on what it is like living in a bubble. Tour was informative, guides were so nice.

The best mansion art tour north of Olana; It's worth making the advance reservation with limited access on Tuesday afternoons.
