Belvedere Mansion reviews
A wonderful historical home. The guides were knowledgeable, patient and easy to understand. The home is filled with many amazing pieces of art and furniture. Unfortunately it is clutter. Pieces from Liberace's collection, the Drake Hotel, the Vatican, Gone with the Wind set pieces and various other unrelated pieces are mixed in with the pieces related to the house and local history which keeps this place from getting 5 stars. To get the whole tour involves stair climbing. Free parking is available around the home. Tours start frequently. The home itself has many features such as built in shutters that are amazing.
All new guides last time I visited. Very friendly & patient, willing to explain questions we had, & also informative stories on the relation of the house to the history of Galena itself dating back to the Civil War days. A must for the whole experience:)
