Right across the street from the capital, the mansion is well maintained. Behind a high fence and guarded, as it should be, the mansion is beautiful to look at.

You can't go in (obviously) but this is a fun part of touring the state capitol building (which is also very impressive).

We were given a tour of the Mansion by a very knowledgeable guide. Our guide enjoyed her job and made the tour fun. If you have the time and tours are available, it is worth seeing.

We did the Capitol tour - and noticed the Governors Mansion had tours the same day in the afternoon. Had lunch and decided to go for it. Worth the visit - some interesting decor and bits of Nebraska History. Would do it again!
