“Is this a house or a history tour?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The house is quite interesting, and the tour isn't not worth the money... but the tour focuses more on how the current family has adjusted things, and has little information on the actual history of it, or the original owner. Even one of the frescoes has been retouched... and not very well. Overall, it was fascinating. But a bit of a letdown.

“An amazing house well worth the admission for the tour.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

It was a very quiet day so we had a tour for just the two of us. Tour lasted 45 mns and cost $7.50 each. At the end asked the guide how long she had been doing the job and turned out only a month, apart from using a cue card at the beginning to give background she knew all about the house and gave us the time to take our own pace. She was great. The house is fascinating and so many different rooms with belongings from different times. It is a B & B as well.

“Great Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

I would not stay there but it was a great place to tour. Our tour guide was very young so we were a little concerned. However, she did a wonderful job! She could not answer very many questions but that was okay because she did know so very much. The mansion has few remaining items from the Clarks, the original owners. It is full of antiques and interesting historical items that have been collected from around Butte. The upstairs has a very disappointing room full of junkie collections like an entire wall full of penguins. This was a disappointment and had nothing to do with the mansion. However, overall this is completely worth a visit. Beautiful mansion!
