Our docent was very knowledgeable and super excited to share this place and its colorful history. Get there early so that you can spend some time exploring the grounds.

This was an excellent peaceful place to tour without the hassle of going downtown. There is also a place to have lunch at reasonable prices. Suggest you combine this with a visit to the nearby Science Center if you plan on visiting that also.

Loved the Spandina Museum. The grounds were amazing with the biggest trees. I just loved the buildings and the history behind it. Great tour.

This gorgeous mansion has been featured in many films and on TV shows and commercials. It's a fairly quick tour but one worth taking.
