Love all the old stuff, wish there was more!

Great way to dive into local history. Lots of artifacts. Just wish there was more. Perhaps someone with stories to tell about the displays.

The staff is so polite and helpful! Both times we came here, the ladies (tour guides) were very informative. The house isnt huge but it was a very pleasant tour... i loved all the decor around the home and the different era's they represented. I would definitely recommend a visit here if youre in the Modesto area. I cant wait... More

We saw the movie at the visitor's center and took the tour. Beautiful mansion. The wallpaper is fantastic. Then we had the opportunity to attend a family event at the mansion. The staff was great.

Lovely visitor center/gift shop. Personalized tour of the mansion with such a fascinating history of the McHenry family and the establishment of Modesto. Very worth seeing.

The McHenry Mansion is a beautiful place with an interesting past. The tour guide was excellent and very informative, as she explained the details of the mansion's beautiful interior and exterior, as well as its history. This place is one of very few historical gems remaining in the Modesto area.

Amazing piece of local history! Just took my third grade students on a field trip tour. So much to see inside the mansion! Tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and so nice! Great for a guided tour or just to wander around and look through at your own pace. Beautiful place to visit!

Before touring the house there is a short, but informative, film on the McHenry family. There is a lot to see in the mansion and the family history and building of Modesto is... More

My aunt, husband and I visited this mansion on a Sunday and had a wonderful tour with an extremely knowledgeable docent. We watched a film prior to our tour and it was a wonderful overview of the history of the mansion, the family and the times. The mansion was owned by Robert McHenry who was really not who he said...
