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 First Lady Mrs. Bryant was gracious, kind, and very giving of her time and expertise of the mansion. It was informative, entertaining... 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

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.
