McHenry Mansion

it was a fun tour of an historic mansion.....I went with my daughter - in law. It was a fun bonding experience for us and we went back a few weeks later with my son so he could experience the tour worth every penny.

Nice look at old time Modesto /Central Valley. Not sure I would make a special trip, but if you are in the area it is worth a look.

I had never been to the Mansion, so when we saw it open at Christmas we went for a tour. Enjoyed ourselves very much. They had very knowledgable Docents. You need to visit.

The mansion was rescued from demolition in 1978 by the late Julio Gallo who turned it over to the City of Modesto for restoration, The community responded and the City now has a wonderful replica of what was a grand house fully furnished with period pieces; some from the McHenry family. It should not be missed.

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.
