The McHenry Mansion is super charming. Having a docent follow you from room to room like a conversational mugger, not so much. Still,worth a gander and a lovely space for formal events.

The tour was very informative and entertaining. The mansion was decorated for Christmas and is just beautiful. I did A LOT of my Christmas shopping at the gift shop. Very unique selections and lots of seasonal items. I will be back there after the holidays for any gifts I need.

I visited the Dickens Faire, Farmer's Market and was able to tour the historic mansion as well? Authentic furnishings, looking out the window I could envision how it might have been when it was the Mchenry's home.

Came across this at the least minute and glad we did. The volunteers who gave the free tours were very interested in showing you the renovated mansion. Great historical information around this mansion. Definitely glad we found this treasure.

Gorgeous old mansion with fascinating history! Be sure to make it a must to do over the Christmas season. The mansion and the docents are all decorated for the season!

What a wonderful old mansion in California history. How great it is to see an old mansion restored to the way it was. It is well worth the time spent. It costs nothing but you will be enriched with life the way it was before the streets were paved. If you are there the night before the tour take some... More

My wife and I were escorted on a tour of the mansion by a very knowledgeable docent. The tour is worth it just for the historical background provided. The mansion itself is in a constant state of upgrade as funding becomes available, and hearing its own history is also very interesting. We'd recommend this tour to anyone and especially those...

Interesting place. The kids loved it. We went as a little tread for the kids and they enjoyed it a lot. We got some history and fun in one trip.
