We visited the house June 17th. There are only guided tours at 9.30 till 11.00 am, every half hour from Tuesday to Friday. You have to wait outside the gate at West St. They show and explain every room but you can not take pictures of the rooms.

We arrived a few minutes late for the last tour and the security guard kindly called to see if we could join the tour late. I am so glad he did that! Lovely home and wonderful to learn a bit more about Mississippi history.

Until I visited the State Capitol that morning, I did not know that the Governor's Mansion was open for tours. The mansion is very historic and beautiful. The tour guides were very knowledgable, kind and proud of Mississippi's history and heritage. I recommend the tour to all!

Takes about an hour with a guide. Has been refurbished and if your a history buff for southern history it might be worthwhile.

The gracious wife of Governor Phil Bryant, Deborah, invited the Congeniality Sunday School Class, Brandon First United Methodist, to a tour of the mansion and a personal tour of the private living area, and she presented each of us with a beautiful ceramic cross made by the residents of The Mustard Seed facility.

Deborah Bryant is so gracious, making every visitor feel important as she shows off Mississippi's First Home. The renovations are beautiful, and certainly something every visitor and resident of Mississippi should make time for over the next few years.

This beautiful pre-Civil War structure is a real beauty. Tours are available with Christmas being the best time to visit.
