The tour of the Mississippi Governor's Mansion is free and, we were told, takes about 20 minutes. Ours took almost twice that long, which was a good thing, because our docent was very enthusiastic and had lots of fascinating stories to tell about the history of the mansion and of the state. The tour only covers the historic part of... More

The Mississippi Governor's Mansion is not to be missed if you are touring Jackson. It is the second oldest continually occupied Governor's Mansion in the United States, and it is one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture that exists in the U.S. today. Visitors are given tours of the first and second floors of the historic part of... More

The mansion was just a couple of blocks from the Old Capitol Museum so we walked. Our tour guide was Pat and she was fantastic - had a vast array of knowledge. Just one thing about visiting Mississippi...the roads were horrible in town; holes and broken pavement everywhere.

My husband and I were the only ones on the tour. We felt like we were honored guests of the governor. An absolutely beautiful home, with fresh flowers on the dining room table. It was like they were placed there just for us.

The governors mansion is still in use. It is the second oldest continuously occupied governors residence in the US. The front older part is what the tour covers and used for special occasions. Grant celebrated the fall of Vicksburg in this house! The tour is free and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Tours are at 09:30 and 11:00. Photos... More

It is very pretty and well preserved. I came in little before the closing time so it was no guided tour - just walked in and looked around. Everything is in excellent condition and well kept furnishings. It is well worth your time if you are in Jackson.

Three historic buildings, only about three blocks apart. The Old Capitol at the head of the main street and the Governor's Mansion three bolcks down are of the same mid 1800s era, and by the same architect. The Governor's Mansion houses the governor and his family in the newer north half, the south half being preserved as the original home... More
