The Governor's Mansion

Home to New York’s governors and their families, the Mansion is filled with artifacts, furnishings, art, and visual and written documents. Groups can learn about the mansion’s significance in history and culture while on a tour, which focuses on the mansion in three different time periods: the Victorian era, the 1920s to mid-1930s, and the 1960s to the present day. Tours then culminate with a discussion about the mansion’s place in the present and future, including the importance of sustainable living.
