Great Visit To The Governor’s Mansion
Mar 2020
Margeret Robeson gave a terrific tour of the Governor’s Mansion, complete with history of the building, residents, and garden. We went during off times, and had the incredibly knowledgeable Ms Robeson all to ourselves. It is a beautiful building the people of Mississippi should be proud of.

Beautiful Building and Landscape
Dec 2019
We went on Christmas Day so it was closed. But we got to walk around the building itself and take some pictures. The building is beautiful and well maintained, the landscaping is immaculate. Very nice are to walk around, snap some good pictures and explore Jackson's downtown area.

Mini white house
Sep 2019
Touring the public rooms here reminded us of the White House - very impressive and historical, and our guide was full of stories for each room. Beautiful place to visit, but tour times are limited, so check first! More signs pointing to the right gate to enter would've been helpful. We had read that the tour started at the front door, so we were waiting at the front gate ...but the actual check in point was around the side!

A beautiful structure even if you just take a gander. The tour times vary so make sure you do the research and book a tour if you have time.

Always a great visit in any season.

Really interesting 30-minute tour by docent. She gave me some recently updated information about the furnishings. House is most beautiful in winter when it is decorated for Christmas, but makes a great stop in the heat of the summer. Just down the street from the Old Capitol Museum and fairly close to the two new downtown museums (Mississippi History and Civil Rights).

An excellent replica of Mississippi History
Dec 2017 • Family
This home is occupied by each serving governor. It is a lovely view of history and a beautiful home. Located in downtown Jackson on old bricked streets, it is a perfect setting for the leader of the state.

Beautiful, historical building downtown
Apr 2018 • Couples
The Governor of Mississippi lives in the rear of this restored landmark. Every morning starting at 9:30 free tours are offered of the front rooms and their historical furnishings. Meet the guard at the west gate. Our tour guide Steve was a true southern gentleman. Note the magnificent chandeliers, the wooden fireplace mantles, and the poster beds. There is a restored grand piano, and an interesting English writing box (an early laptop) that might be opened for you. The dining room is where General Sherman celebrated the Union victory at Vicksburg in 1863.
The tour lasts about 45 minutes.
