Tour the Missouri Governor's Mansion
Governor Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Wheeler Nixon extend an invitation to all to come visit the "People's House." The Missouri Governor's Mansion hosts more than 60,000 visitors annually.
The State Museum schedules tours for the Missouri Governor's Mansion. Tour requests can be made by accessing the Missouri State Parks and Historic Site web page (click on request button above). We hope the new online scheduling will make your visit to Jefferson City's Capitol Complex easier and more enjoyable. It is recommended that you schedule some additional time in between your tours because of the distance between the Capitol and the Governor's Mansion.
Volunteer docents provide the historical tours for the Missouri Governor's Mansion. The Mansion staff feels very fortunate to have the support of the Missouri Mansion Preservation, Inc. Docent Program. Once you have booked your tour, please read all information carefully to fully understand the Mansion guidelines set in order to protect this historical site.
If your group is fewer than ten people, please feel free to come to the front gate at 100 Madison Street without a reservation. Mrs. Nixon wants to accommodate the traveler, from near and far, to the Missouri Governor's Mansion. You may have to wait a few minutes, but you are graciously invited to take a tour.
In the case of a scheduling conflict with tours, the Mansion staff will place a sign on the front gate to share the closure. Special accommodations for groups with disabilities are available.
