I have been to a lot of beautiful old homes. What makes this one stand out is that so much of the original furnishings, artwork, wall coverings, curtains, etc., are still there. Tour guides are knowledgeable. I love beautiful old homes that were built in a time when things were built to last (they have an icebox from the 40s... More

Tucked away in the center of town is this jewel of a home. The interiors and fixtures are, in themselves, works of art. The house as a whole is a glimpse into the life and times of turn of the century entrepreneurs. My tour in late November was led by a fantastic knowledgeable hometown guide; 1:1 interaction was great. Probably... More

This home is a wonderful treasure. Has all original wall treatments - Art Nouveau burlap reverse batik, pink silk in the Louis XVI French parlor, Saracenic arch in the Moorish Entry, Oak ceiling (like the ceiling in the Oak Room of NYC Plaza Hotel - they share the same architect Henry Janeway Hardenbergh), Art Moderne kitchen with tile on the...

Great attraction to visit when you visit Billings...check it out! We had a wonderful tour guide named Lue. She was amazing, friendly, professional and knowledgeable. After you pay admission, you watch a 15 minute movie about Mr. Moss and his family then onto the tour. After the tour, you can stop by their gift shop that has lots of special... More

A wonderful guided tour around the home of P. B. Moss a businessman who developed Billings from a frontier town into a modern city. The mansion has several themed rooms including one that resembled the Alhambra palace of Granada. The guide was friendly and had a good level of knowledge about the house, Moss himself and the city of Billings.... More

This mansion was finished being built in 1903. The guided tour is about 1 hour. You start by watching a short video, then the tour guide will point out all the interesting items from around the house. Most everything here is original, or very close to original. The bad part is you are not allowed to take photos. This is... More

Moss Manision is a beautiful place with a lot of interesting facts and furnishings. This tour had the potential to be an amazing tour. The problem that ruined our experience was Karen the older lady that was our tour guide. She did not speak towards the group on most of the tour even once she was asked to. She would... More

The house and the furnishings were interesting, Moss had a lot of money and he put a lot of it into his house. His wife had great plans for th furnishings and what she attempted was interesting. We did not like the guide we had and she didn't seem to like our group much either. I might have given it... More
