“Too Short of a Tour”

Original Governor's Mansion
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This place was fascinating with lots of historical details. Our tour guide gave us as much information as he could with just an hour tour. Our group asked a lot of questions, so we had to rush through the top floor. The dining room windows were one of my favorite things about the Mansion - unique, colorful and beautiful. We really enjoyed our visit.

We interrupted our tour of the Historical Society Museum to come for the 3:00 pm (the last one of the day) guided tour. A family of four wandered in, but left as soon as they heard that the visit was not free! Big mistake, as the tour was fascinating, and the charge was only a few dollars. Our guide was delightful, and knew the building inside-out. Lots to see, and the stories of the various families who had occupied the building were entertaining.

Actually, a LOT of Montana history! Very knowledgeable docents take you on a guided tour of the mansion. Lovely museum to early Montana history. Make it a must-see, along with the Montana State Capitol

I'd put the OGM on the Top 5 list of things to visit when you are in Helena Montana. Well preserved, very historical, not expensive, and a real part of Montana history. Check it out!!

Beautifully restored to the era when it was last inhabited in a quiet neighborhood. The docent was extremely knowledgeable and provided informative commentary.
