Kearny Mansion Museum was a great part of my childhood. I used go inside of the house as a little girl. This house inspired my love for luxury.This is a must see for everyone in Fresno but most of the staff are not very friendly. Everyone should go during the weekends.

It's rare to get to step inside the house of a king, but, Kearney Mansion is the house built by the Raisin King, and, it reflects the early 1900 ethic, style and charm. Not a castle, but, not a bungalow, the house tells the story of an immigrant's dream for success, and how that dream was realized in the farming... More

I was in Fresno on a Thursday and was hoping to see this museum. That said it is only open Fri Sat and Sun and the person answering the phone told me in a not so friendly manner. I said how about coming to see the grounds and she told me it was long way to come and didn't encourage... More

We are so sorry if we sounded unfriendly. This was certainly not intentional. We would welcome your visit to the park and the Kearney Mansion in the future. More

This old house is a must to see. Located in Kerney Park. The history there is something. The house is furnished with stuff from that era.

We go to the mansion periodically. The volunteers who conduct the tours and keep the place up deserve allot of credit. It is stepping back in time... at one time it was a working ranch. Plan to take our grand children there...

I visited Kearney Mansion many years ago while I was attending Clovis HS Interior Decorating 101 on a field-trip. The architecure had an intriguing characteristic suited for Mrs. Kearney.

I loved touring the Kearney Mansion, which was actually the Manager's house for the working farm there. Mr. Kearney was going to build a castle there on the now Kearney Park grounds but died before he got a chance to start. But the plans are there at the house and drawings too. If you llike looking at old house and... More
