The costumed guides could have been "touristy" but I found that they helped to tell the story of the Governor's House. The building is beautifully preserved and the furnishings and art work are a must see. The gardens look amazing and I recommend allowing time...More

The restored mansion gives you a glimpse into the life of an earlier era. The furnishings were impressive. Attendants were dressed in period costumes giving it a cheesy feeling.

This museum and grounds is also known as the Governor' House. It's an hour or so well spent. It's a good museum for a medium sized city, but after St Petersburg, I admit to being a little jaded. Most of the paintings are more interesting...More
