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.

I like old houses. I like the feel of those who have lived there. The docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. The museum store carries a wide variety of memorabelia and unique items. Have attended several dinner table decoration fund raisers. I love the photos of old Modesto.

We enjoyed our tour even though many rooms were closed for restoration after a fire. Our guide provided a good history of the building and its original owners. We will return when the restoration is complete.

The Mansion. So glad it has been restored. It is still like stepping back in time when you visit. Can't wait until Christmas with the house will once again be open for the festivities with all their decor.

The mansion and the museum with it are very interesting with a lot of old and esoteric memorabilia on display. Glad places like this exist so we can learn about our past
