The State of Nevada Governor's Mansion is located about four blocks away from the Nevada State Capitol. I enjoyed seeing it but am not positive that were I on foot walking the walk would be worth the effort. Why I ponder does anyone need such an elaborate mansion.

On special occasions the Governor and his family allow the public to tour their home.. It's a grand old Manson with lots of history and memorabilia.. It's interesting from a historical point and also to see the private living areas of the Governor and his family..

If you want to see where the governor of Nevada lives, then you found it. Yes, it looks like a mansion on the outside, but isn't specifically special to make your way to go see. Now, that being said...if it is around Halloween or Christmas, then DEFINITELY make your way to the mansion as they do a fantastic job of... More

The Governor's Mansion as far as I know is not open to public tours except at Nevada Day celebrations (October 31st), but is well worth waiting in line for to see it. If the Governor is there you can get a picture with him. The property and the building is absolutely beautiful and is in a really good neighborhood in... More

The mansion was ready for halloween. The buildings and the grounds were covered in decorations. They had a roped area were the kids can stand in line and wait their turn to enter the mansion. The building itself is very nicely designed and not over the top.

If it weren't for the walking tour of Historic Carson City I never would have stumbled upon the Governor's Mansion. I didn't go inside, but was able to walk the perimeter of the property. It was amazing to get so close to such an important public figure's home. The grounds were impeccably maintained - garden-like. The house itself is classic... More

This is a great historical and beautiful building. Sure wish it was open to the public. Holidays are best to visit as they really deck it out but Labor Day weekend is not one they do anything special for.

We walked by while we were doing the Kit Carson trail. It is a nice place, unfortunately you can not go in and they do not give tours after all it is the Govenors mansion.
