$5 Tuesdays

$5 Tuesdays was such a hit last February, we’re extending an additional month into the spring. Happening now through the end of May, $5 will get you through the doors of the mansion on Tuesdays.

Is there a better date idea that leaves you money to spare? $5 Tuesdays will be happening through the end of May. This is the only time of year that the Classic Tour is heavily discounted.

This is a great time of year to tour the mansion, avoid the crowds, and feel like you have the place to yourself.


21+ Flashlight Tours

Flashlight Tours are back… with a complete overhaul. First, you will need to be 21 or older to be on the tour. This is not a tour for kids. As part of your cost for admission, guests will receive a branded Glensheen Flashlight Tour pint glass with… a sippy cup cover. The cover allows you to bring your glass and alcoholic beverage INSIDE the mansion.

What else is new? The addition of Glensheen’s newest space available to the public for tour — The Carriage House Living Room. Here, guests will enjoy the warmth of a live fire — the only working fireplace on the estate.

February 2nd — March 17th, 21+ Flashlight Tours will be offered Friday and Saturday nights from 7:00 pm — 9:00 pm. PURCHASE TICKETS ONLINE, AHEAD OF TIME at


Zenith City on Tap

Glensheen presents Zenith City On Tap, a series of talks on the history of Duluth by author and historian Tony Dierckins, publisher of Duluth’s Zenith City Press.

Tony has lined up some awesome topics that are topical for the month. The first talk will be on historic theaters which is hot off the tail of the Nor Shor Theater’s grand opening on February 1st. Then, of course, any talk that takes place on Valentine’s Day needs to have a love theme.
