Well restored mansion offering free tours by well versed guides. Tour takes about 30-40 minutes and is very informative. Site also has a well furnished gift shop. It is 1 block away from the McHenry Museum (old library) which is also well worth visiting. Artifacts are professionally displayed and exhibits well documented. You can see both in about 2 hours...

I love the McHenry Mansion, especially at Christmas. You have to see it at Christmas time. It's a must see.

As of April 8, the mansion is closed for restoration. They are hoping for a May 1st opening. The visitor center next door is cute and adorable.

Have not been there since they had a fire. It is furnished Victorian style. Has a lot of history about Modesto. I have been to special teas, that were very good.

The Mansion is the best location for transporting yourself and kids to the past. Beautifully maintained and still open. Amazing.

It's a lovely Victorian mansion with attention to period details. (They are still finishing restoration after a fire.) It is one of the few historical sites to visit in Modesto. Unless you are really into Victorian mansions I wouldn't go out of my way to visit it, but it is pleasant if you happen to be in Modesto. Admission is... More

I especially enjoyed the gift shop with memorabilia. I remember mainly the tall ceilings and long drapes. Reminds me of the John Muir house in Martinez. I prefer to walk alone; guides are gracious and knowledgabale. hours are not so convenient.

We didn't get to go inside and there were workers repainting the outside, but it was nice to learn a little bit about Modesto's history.
