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.

I was very impressed with the mansion. Attended a reception there and had the opportunity for a quick tour. Great to see the furnishing and the great maintaining of the property.

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

Mansion is beautifully preserved 1842 masterpiece. Still occupied by the Governor's family and the "First Dog." In the heart of downtown Jackson, and equidistant from the Old Capitol and State Capitol. Free 30-minute tours with docent. Open Tuesday-Friday with first tour at 9:30 AM and last tour beginning at 11:00 AM.

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.
