“Old and historic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I am sure it is cleaned regularly but you can just imagine how old and dusty everything is. We have not been in the mansion since they stopped doing the Haunted Halloween tours, but they still do the Christmas tours.

“Great Place to Visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We took a small tour of the Governor's Mansion and had a lot of fun. There is so much history and information there. I never would have guessed it was so interesting. Very beautiful and an awesome place to visit. Everything is restored and very well taken care of.

I recommend a visit to the Governor's manson!!

This is a must see if you are from Missouri! The view of the river is also breathtaking.

“Tuesdays and Thursday, last tour at 2:30.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

I just wanted to put this review here to save others the disappointment that I had. With a one night stay only, I missed the Governor's Mansion tour by a few minutes, arriving about 2:40. The nearby tourist information office told me that since this really is the Governor's Mansion - that is, his house - he sets the times and there's nothing they can do about it. Just be aware.
