This was first time touring the Governors Mansion and we were impressed with the building, grounds, renovations, and furniture and artwork on display. Politics aside, Diana Rauner did a wonderful job overseeing the restoration and obtaining private donations for the project.

Really enjoyed the experience of being in the Governors Mansion. My favorite room was the Dining Room with the very long table and the beautiful chandelier.

This is a free guided tour. The guides will unlock the front gates to let you on the property near the appointed tour times. Photos are permitted of the grounds and mansion exterior but not inside. You will tour 3 floors. The starting point is a short film about the mansion.

Interesting. Not long enough, time-wise, in my opinion. No photography allowed inside. New rule since we visited, must make reservations 48 hours in advance.

Great job done bringing mansion back to this stage. Interesting furniture inside. Great tours given from 1 to 4 pm. Your take almost one and half hours.
