“Governor's House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This beautiful pre-Civil War structure is a real beauty. Tours are available with Christmas being the best time to visit.

“Historic Splendor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

OK, I work for the Governor, so many of my meetings and events here are for work more than pleasure. But the new Governor and First Lady have made certain that some much-needed renovations have taken place. Even when I am here for formal events, the Mansion staff are always very accommodating and hospitable in giving tours and sharing history. Visit if you can!

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

A well-kept piece of history. Many pieces of period furnishings still exist there, and the grounds are very nice.

“Miss. Governor's Mansion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

the location only 2 blocks from the Mississippi Capitol. It is free 20 minutes tour from volunteer staff. The tour inside the Mansion with beautiful furnitures. Love the real fresh flowers decorations.
NO garden tour; you are not allow to go the garden: the side and the back because the present Governor is living the back of this mansion..

“Ok for a short tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

You are toured through hall & 4 rooms of the original portion of the mansion. No garden tour. Very little of the furniture is original.
The tour takes only twenty minutes.
