“Old Charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

A step back into the history of Modesto. Wonderful to see at Christmas when the Mansion is decorated for the holidays. Nice little gift shop with lots of wonderful tea pot sets for little girls or collectors. Been through the house several times plus attended a beautiful wedding in its gardens.

“Closed at this time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

A very nice museum for our little town and represents the by gone era. It is closed at this time for at least 6 months due to a fire in Dec 2011. Worth a visit when it re-opens. Very nice for dinners down stairs and wine tasting (Gallo, of course)

“Great place.... but..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2007

Great place to visit, take in some Victorian era history. Loved the beautiful artwork and furniture of the time. The Gallo family revived what history there was in Modesto. Which isn't very much at all, as you find out on the tour. It seems like the city and its citizens have let Modesto history pass by without recording it properly or protecting it.
Beautifully taken care of inside and out.
Many weddings and special occasions in the gardens behind the Mchenry Mansion.
Only downside to this tour was the gift shop waiting for guests of the tour at the end. Its just another way to help maintain the building.

The house would be splendid without the added merchandise.
