Experience the wonder and joy of the Christmas season at Glensheen on a tour of the mansion! The Classic Christmas Tour includes access to the lower three floors of the mansion and is the perfect foundational Glensheen holiday experience.
From the moment you walk onto the estate, you will experience the magic of Christmas and be taken back to the early 1900s when Glensheen was built. 27 trees, hundreds of feet of garland, and thousands of Christmas lights adorn the rooms and halls throughout the house. For those looking for extra fun or a family-friendly activity, we have also hidden 25 elves throughout the mansion to find as you take your tour. The sneaky elves like to hide in funny places throughout the mansion, making for a great scavenger hunt for guests of all ages!
The entire estate glows during the winter, and after your tour, you are free to wander the grounds, capture the perfect photos, and explore to your heart’s desire.
We look forward to welcoming you to Glensheen this holiday season!
The Classic Christmas tour is a self-guided experience of the lower level, first, and second floors. This is a great foundational tour for first-time or returning visitors of Glensheen!
