Very interesting, well presented tour. The "Huey" stories certainly add to the character of the "Louisiana White House" as well. Rooms are well furnished with period pieces. The "Sunshine" room complete with Sunshine's saddle was priceless.

Anything with former Louisiana Governor Huey Long is always exciting. Add an amazing tour guide and you get stories about Huey, his brother Earl, and other Louisiana leaders who inhabited this gorgeous house in downtown Baton Rouge. Well worth the trip!!

We visited the Mansion on June 11th. It is a guided tour of the rooms. You are allowed to take pictures. The rooms are decorated with furniture of the different governors who lived there.

The history in Baton Rouge is very interesting and this stop will not disappoint you. The tour guide was very knowledgeable since she grew up in the area.

We tried to visit the old governor's mansion today. Unfortunately, we were turned away because the last tour started at 3:30??? And we arrived at 4:00. Totally bummed and disappointed at how early tours stop.
