Phone ahead to get the time for the tour. You can only see the mansion if you are on a tour. The guide was well informative.

Loved this place. It covers so many years in California history from the Gold Rush to Jerry Brown's family. He lived here as a kid while his dad was governor. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the visit.
