      EVENT DETAILS
      Guided Tour

      Guides conduct tours on the hour, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The Mansion is unusual among museums in that it is not a replica nor a restoration. It stands much as it did when vacated by the Reagans in 1967. Walk through history and see the furnishing and personal items left by each family, including Governor Pardees 1902 Steinway piano, the plum velvet sofa and chairs purchased by Mrs. Hiram Johnson in 1911, hand-tied Persian carpets acquired by Mrs. Earl Warren in 1943, and the official state china that Mrs. Goodwin Knight selected in the late 1950s. You will also see marble fireplaces from Italy, gold framed mirrors from France, and exquisitely handcrafted hinges and doorknobs, all of which are reminders of the Victorian era. In addition to the tour itself, it is also possible to look around the mansion grounds and enjoy the flowers, shrubs, and trees, some of which date back to 1877. A swimming pool, presented as a gift to Governor Edmund G. Brown, Sr. in 1959 is visible inside the fenced patio.

      Cost: $5; $3 children
