While on Holidays in Billings, we stopped at the mansion. It was fairly expensive to get in, about $32 for a family of 4. You cannot tour the mansion yourself and must go with the guided tour. I was very skeptical about this but the guide was very knowledgeable and the house is amazing. I am not a fan of... More

Having practiced architecture I really enjoyed walking through history of this old house. Take the time to see the rooms of the Moss Mansion and appreciate the craftsmanship it took to build it. It must have been something during its time. I could not take pictures inside but I do have exteriors. Take note the stone used for the exterior... More

The house is said to be in original condition and still looks brand new. The details and finishings are spectacular. Visits are by 1 hour tour on the hour only, so you also get the full oral history of the home while you visit. Caution - there is no A/C in the summertime so plan ahead!

I love old homes and their history and this is no exception. This is an amazing house, the opulence in the first room alone will knock the breath out of you :) Our guide was young and sometimes couldn't answer our questions and my husband and I wondered at her off-handed manner. However, she offered insight into the Moss's and... More

Our tour guide was excellent! We weren't rushed, and it's a very, very cool place to visit! If you're in the area, I would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful house with a very interesting history. Moss was a hugely influential figure in the development of Billings.

This mansion is nicely done with lots of original to the house furniture. Knowledgable pleasant guide delivered in an entertaining way. The grounds are also awesome but spring time would be a better time of the year for the flowers.

We have been to the Moss Mansion on a few occasions and it never fails to delight. It is an interesting piece of history. The tour is good, questions answered, and not rushed. Nice way to spend an afternoon. The halloween tour was fun as well.
