I usually go to the Vaile Mansion during the Strawberry Festival every year. I usually volunteer at the Strawberry Tent. I have toured the Vaile at various times. The grounds are beautiful and the Vaile is exquisite!

Went here based on tip from Truman house staff--good suggestion! Four of us came here after touring Truman house. Staff graciously agreed to tour since we were all out of states even though we arrived about 3:20 (they close at 4). Don, the guide, was great and full of house tidbits.

My sister was visiting from Memphis and we all enjoyed our visit of vaile mansion. my husband and I live in Independence but had never toured the mansion, It was decorated for the holidays, so much detail in keeping everything as it would have been origionally. The staff dressed in period costumes was an additional treat. It may be slightly... More

Don interpreted the site perfectly, integrating stories that made the place come alive. Great interiors and fascinating background to understanding the neighborhood.

Beautiful Mansion. Our guide was very well informed on the family history and took the time to explain the details of each room. Would highly recommend taking the tour.

The mansion is absolutely beautiful and the tour guides are friendly and full of stories. It takes about 1 hour to tour the mansion, but it worth the entrance price.

Don't waste your money! The house was beautiful but the furniture wasn't original. The lady that gave the tour was too close minded for the unexplained and denied things that were said in the brochure. They should really update their tour guide to someone who is more open minded to the unexplained. If you are interested in old furniture or... More

Unbelievable decorations through every inch of this home. The history was quite interesting. The tour guides were all very knowledgeable and definitely interested in the subject matter. This is just up the street from our home, and I am so glad to finally have toured. I am sure it would be interesting in the non-Christmas season as well, but seeing... More
