Mansion was not open....being renovated.....will return to St. Jo and take the tour. Looked up history on the mansion and was very interested in the family(s) that made the house their home.

This is a wonderful building with a lot of history around it. It seems to be a work in progress and I hope it gets better. The main level is by far the best part of the mansion showcasing the wood work and elegant dinning room. I didn't find a lot of description on the displays, there is an area... More

It's worth a visit for those who appreciate restoration of homes. The top floor is not decorated like the bottom two floors but the whole house is worth the visit.

Couldn't get in because it is being renovated. Can't wait until it is finished. Heard the main floor is good but they need to finish and open up the other floors. Great building to drive by and appreciate what it was in its day!

Great show of how rich people lived in the late 19th century.a lot of interesting things from that time..the house has incredible wood floors designs. And great history behind it. For the cost you must see if you like history

This place has a lot of potential but the lack of description leaves you feeling empty. There is no real attempt to give you a historical grounding to the exhibits or the rooms. A few well placed placards describing what the rooms were used for, how much things cost to build or maintain, or other tidbits would have helped improve... More

This house is grand with all the wood work, flooring and the details on the walls. They also used the second and third floor to highlight other "Museum" items that are "native" to St. Joe. It was very educational during my day trip to St. Joe from Kansas City.

Don't waste your time just to see a bunch of stuffed dead animals & dust. There are much better things in town worth seeing. Nothing memorable from this site.

The "St Joseph Museum" is actually the 1879 Wyeth-Tootle Mansion and is operated by St Joseph Museum, Inc. The photo above is from the Patee House. This mansion/museum is only open on Fridays & Saturdays and is worth the visit. The first floor, with its large rooms opening into the central hall, was originally used mainly for entertaining and is... More

The set up of this museum is wonderful! My six year old loved it as well. Something for all ages here. We had family from Ohio with us that have been to many before and say hands down this is the best one the have seen! We thought it was cool that American Pickers had even toured this one. Lots...
