This was a cool mansion to visit. We took the self guided tour and that was plenty for our family. It was a very large and beautiful space!

We did the guided tour. The tour starts with a video then you walk with a well informed guide thru the main floor and also the sleeping floor. Most of the artifacts you learn were found in the home and details on the style of rooms and furniture is well documented. Sad to hear things like the grand piano were stolen when the house was transitioned to city care. Not all historic homes have so many actual items from the residents that resided in the home.

Well preserved with historical rich furnishings and elaborate and ornate old European finishes, wall covering and ceilings. The mansion contains much of the original furnishings and the self guided tour was worth taking. They also provide guided tours if you are willing to wait. I recommend watching a short video regarding the story of the Mosses and the mansion at the beginning of the tour as it helped frame the context of the family. It cost $12 per adult or $10 per Senior with kids being less. Kids under 10 may get a little bored. Tour entrance was at the back of the mansion in the enormous basement that also serves as the gift shop. There are no elevators or ramps and you climb 2 flights of stairs and then come back down, so handicap guests or those with trouble handling stairs would probably not be recommended on the tour. There were curators available throughout the house if there were any additional questions and we utilized them to gain more information. They do provide you a floor plan map of the house and you are free too explore at your leisure on the self guided tour. We took about 2 hours and it was worth it.

We can certainly agree with the NUMBER ONE attraction rating. This home was simply fabulous and its 'history was spellbinding. The original owner was an incredible entrepreneur who amassed a fortune and in the process was one of the folks responsible for the rise of Billings. This home was the first in Montana to have all of the modern amenities'. In addition the furnishings and craftmanship rival castles throughout Europe and even America`s Biltmore House in Ashville . The staff was so very informative and helpful, going out of their way to make sure that our visit was exceptional. Clearly the Mansion the highlight of our visit to Billings.

First time here, Park on street. If you like great big old homes with lots of history and a few oddities--you will really like this place. Entered via the gift shop, which was a bit hard to find. Lower level. There may have been an elevator. Not sure. But take the stairs if you can. This is not a place for young kids or toddlers. Helps you really understand the history of Billings in an easy-to-digest way. Period pieces, and some unexpected items from all over the world (samovar, menorah, some Arabic décor, a small Buddha statue) you may not expect to see. Beautiful glassed-in flower-filled greenhouse attached. Great flowers in yard. Lovely little gem in Billings.

A spur of the moment visit while visiting for business, this was a beautiful hike to explore. It was decked out from top to bottom in the most gorgeous Christmas decorations. I took so many pictures for inspiration! I loved that you can move about at your own pace and take it all in. You must stop by!

I enjoyed exploring this beautiful house! My favorite room was the atrium! There is a small gift shop in the basement were the tour begins. They have a video explaining the family history and guides in each room to answer questions.

Amazing place to visit, very very well preserved. Staff were very knowledgeable and very friendly! We took the self guided tour, would definitely come back and take a guided tour though! One hundred percent recommend going and seeing the house and property for yourself!

Step back 100 years and explore this beautifully maintained historic home. My husband is a woodworker and he especially appreciated the beautifully carved moldings, paneling and furniture. They even have hidden little sunflowers all over the mansion as a scavenger hunt to keep the perhaps otherwise bored little kiddies engaged.
