Full Mansion - Glensheen

Tour Details

Extended Hours for MEA Weekend!

10/19-10/22, Glensheen will be offering the Full Mansion Tour from 9AM – 7PM.

Have you explored the previously closed third floor?

This guided tour of the Midwest’s most visited house museum, expands on the Classic Tour by including the Third Floor and Attic. The Full Mansion Tour is the best tour to get a complete mansion experience. The Third Floor shows off the Congdon boys’ rooms and even a few rooms that have recently been restored back to their original glory.

The Full Mansion Tour includes all  five floors of the mansion, which includes the Lower Level, First, Second, Third Floors and the Attic.

This tour best showcases the entirety of the stunning 39-room mansion built by an iron-ore tycoon as the gateway to the North Shore on Lake Superior. 

Due to limited tour capacity, these tours often sell out early. 

Treasure Book ($1/ea): Enhance your family-friendly Glensheen experience with the new Treasure Hunt, and follow along with Tim the Fox to find Glensheen’s keepsakes. As an interactive guide for children, this fun and educational book will engage the little ones in your group.

Passbook ($2/ea): Read facts not included on the tour, and see photos rarely viewed or shared. Document your memories in a separate section reserved for custom tour stamps. Don’t forget to bring the Passbook on all your adventures at Glensheen. There’s a stamp for each tour you take!

Both are available for purchase online (click here) and onsite.
