Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America’s highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.

I travel to a lot of cities and see a lot of these restored mansions. This one is the most elaborate in detail that I have ever seen. The person that built this originally was over the top fantastic. I loved it.

This mansion is very beautiful, they have a college and AAA discount. There are only about 7 rooms you are able to visit while in the mansion so speak with the staff and get the most information out of all of them.

Thanks to very helpful docents, stationed at almost every room, one learns a lot about the building and its occupants. The attention to details, as well as a fairly complete collection of original furnishings and artwork, were most impressive.

Tour shouldn't take more than an hour; you would have to check their website for their hours of operation.
