Located in Williamsburg, this is a beautiful place to visit. Make sure you get the Williamsburg visitor pass and you can tour it and many other buildings as a ticket holder.

Despite being a reconstruction, this building displays period furniture and art. Gives you a good idea of how a colonial governor of Virginia lived. Make sure you take enough time to wonder the maze and walk down to the river to see the ducks. Great display of period weapons.

The entrance to the palace was magnificent, you felt the grandeur of the era. The furniture was just incredible. It was amazing on how you could have large balls at such a time period.

This is a must see. The palace alone is beautiful, but the tour guide made history come to life. Did have a large crowd during tour, but never felt rushed was able to see and enjoy each room we toured

Beautiful home and furnishings. Enjoyed the tour very much except you are rushed through each room by the tour behind you. Numerous times I was literally hit by the door as it was opened by the guide behind me. Would have liked more time to look at each room; but, \ was rushed by the rude guide behind me.
