My family and I visited the Governor’s Mansion on a field trip. There were quite a few people on our tour but the guide did a great job of discussing the history and keeping the information exciting and educational. The mansion itself is simply breathtaking....More

We used to take our students here for a field trip. It’s a beautiful home (infinity mirrors, AL-shaped pool, etc). I would have given it 5 stars, but I don’t think it’s as open to visitors as it used to be.

This is a beautiful building in a rough area of the city. Make sure you use caution when visiting. Wish the neighborhood had been kept up.

The Governor's Mansion is a beautiful home located in a residential area of Montgomery. As of this writing, tours are given on Tuesday's and Thursday's from 10-2, so unfortunately, we weren't able to do a tour since we were in Montgomery over the weekend.

I did not take a tour, instead i just drove by and snapped a couple of photos. So i cant comment on the interior, but the exterior is beautiful. Definitely worth a quick drive by.

The house is kept in such good shape and it truly belong to Alabamians. Mrs. Riley opened the House up often during her husband's governorship. She wrote a great cookbook.
