I was really excited to go to the Winchester Mystery House. I had been hearing about it for years. The tour was pretty bad. Our tour guide, Wayne, cracked a lot of jokes throughout the tour that only he seemed to find funny. The group was too large, it seemed like we were always waiting for people to catch up. And while there was some historical information given in the tour, honestly there was not very much. We did learn that all the furniture in the house was auctioned off after Mrs. Winchester's death, so everything all furniture is a recreation. The house sounds amazing, you see over 100 rooms on the tour, but what they cal rooms, I might call a closet. It is dubbed as mysterious, but it didn't feel that way. It felt like exactly what it is. A house built with blueprints of random construction from a crazy lady. I just felt like they could do more to make this an experience rather than just walking through tiny cramped spaces. I'm not saying don't go, but don't set your expectations too high.
