“Fascinating story - wonderful house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Our tour guide's family had personal ties to the Daly family which added a personal touch to the tour. The movie at the beginning of the tour set the scene for the rest of the visit. I'm happy that they are collecting only things that belonged to the Daly family rather than trying to fill the mansion with a lot of 'stuff'. We had visited the house of one of the other Copper Kings in Butte, so this was an interesting addition to our history lesson on copper in Montana.
We weren't sure we wanted to drive to Hamilton rather than do more in Missoula, but we were glad we made the drive.

“Fascinating Story - Lovely Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We took the guided tour of the Daily Mansion that starts with a short movie. We arrived early and were invited up to the 3rd floor to look at displays not included on the tour. I highly recommend this. Daily's life was so exceptional it takes a bit to take it all in. This home is totally furnished to correct period with new items being donated regularly. Daily's horse stock won 5 Kentucky Derbys! Ask about the stables that have been restored beautifully down the road.

“Wonderful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

My son and I went to the Daly Mansion. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The tour started with a short video overview of the family history which really helped a visitor understand more about that era in Montana history and made the house tour that much better. The tour guide was informed and full of information about the family, house and customs of the time. If you find yourself in the area, be sure to take a couple of hours and see the mansion.

“Step back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

While staying in the Bitterroot Mountain valley, we visited the Daly Mansion and are glad we did. The tour begins with a short movie giving an overview of the Mansion and its owner. Our guide was very good at telling us the history and some stories revolving around the property. It is very well kept and just a really neat way to learn about the Daly family and some of the past history of early Montana and the copper mining industry, which I knew nothing about before the visit. There is a fee of $9.00 per adult ($8.00 for seniors). We spent about two hours there and keep in mind there are some steps up to the 2nd floor and a little walk from the parking lot.

“Magnificent Old Mansion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

My wife and I took a tour of this old turn of the century mansion in the Bitterroot Valley. This was the home of an historic copper king from the early days of Montana. Fascinating and well run with wonderful groomed grounds.
