“Short but interesting tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The tour is a half an hour at the most, but you learn a lot and see many different and interesting rooms within the Mansion. There is no cost and it is easy to find parking near by.

“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Its not a very popular trip, but if your in springfield and have time, its worth the trip. Some things are out of date but it is very ornate. My favorite part was all of the different bedroom sets. These are all very unique. One was hand widdled. The entire set, dressers, headboard, footboard.... Very cool

“Grand treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Springfield Illinois has one of the oldest and largest govenor mansions in the country. A beautiful winding staircase leads to rooms filled with historic furnishings and treasures. The grounds include a lovely garden during the growing season. During the Christmas Season, the house has many trees decorated by staff from various historic sites. During recent visits the knowledge of the guides has varied greatly.
