Just a block or so from the museums is the governor's mansion (Hi Pat!!). It's a beautiful home with a wonderful garden. I don't think you can take a tour but if you're in the area it's nice to take a gander at the house from the outside.

We have been taking our fourth grade students to Raleigh for 4-5 years now and we have tried to get a tour of the Executive Mansion each time and this was our lucky year! It was an amazing tour. The students and the parents that we were with were in awe of the grandeur of the mansion. It truly is... More

I visited the Executive Mansion during the Christmas holidays. The rooms were decorated for the season with numerous Gingerbread Houses.

Governor McCrory has been very accomodating and supportive of many Community Non-Profit organizations and during one recent such event honoring leaders of North Carolina in the past, we enjoyed a casual visit and tour of the building. It was very well maintained and the simple food that we enjoyed from the buffet was exceptional. I don't know if that was... More

After passing through security ( after all the Governor does live here ) you are greeted by very friendly staff that guide you through the open to the public rooms on the ground floor. A beautiful place and a tribute to all Governors and the people of North Carolina

New Friends of the Carolinas travel group visited the Executive Mansion on their way to the State Capital and were welcomed to a early morning of history and hospitality. This is an informative tour that will surprise and delight the visitor. If you're into history, architecture or gardening, you will not be disappointed in what the tour guides have to... More

The gardens around the Executive mansion are as impressive if not more than the mansion itself. I particularly like the vegetable gardens. They supply the governor and his family with a lot of their fresh produce. The flower collections are very well done. My garden club arranged a private tour. This can be done by calling the governor's office. The... More

Toured the home as a part of a field trip. I love this old home. It is not only beautiful, but what a treasure for North Carolina. We should be proud of this attraction. The staff were very helpful and friendly. This was not my first tour--I love the Holiday tour as well. Great site to visit in Raleigh.

This venue, if you can get in, reminds you of old North Carolina and North Carolina history. Each governor puts their stamp on the place.

I had the pleasure of viewing the decorated Executive Mansion during the holiday open house. There was security but they just looked in our purses and had us go through a metal detector. We were then free to look around on the first floor of this historic building. We were also allowed to take photos which was nice. Inside the... More
