  • The mansion offers excellent free tours of the house. - You'll get to see what the house looked like over the years. The house and most of the levels showcases beautifully well preserved architecture and furnishings. Other levels show off what the house looked like when it was remodeled to become an orphanage. -The tour guides are friendly, interesting, and can answer pretty much any questions you can think of. Definitely pay this land mark a visit!
  • I'm so glad that we made time to do the mansion tour while we were in Sacramento! We started our day at the State Capital building for the free tour there which provided us with an excellent historical overview of Sacramento. We then walked over to the Leland Stanford Mansion for the tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and walking through the house was fascinating! All the information we learned complimented the information we had gotten at the state capitol. So, it was great to do these two tours in order. I would highly recommend this to anyone passing through Sacramento. Another note: From the mansion, we walked over to the State Library (914 Capitol Mall) and that was a great stop, as well! They have a self guided tour and some very significant murals, architecture, etc. inside to see.
