Christmas Full Mansion - Glensheen

Tour Details

See all 25 Christmas Trees and hunt all 25 elves on the Christmas Full Mansion Tour.

Have you explored the previously closed Third Floor?

This tour guides visitors through the Third Floor and Attic. The Full Mansion Tour is the best tour to get a complete mansion experience, as it includes the self-guided General Admission floors, as well. The Third Floor shows off the Congdon Boys’ rooms and even a few rooms that have recently been restored back to their original glory.

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


The Full Mansion tour includes a 30 minute guided experience on the Third Floor and Attic. PLUS, now includes the self-guided General Admission tour for the main floor, second floor, and lower level. 


Due to limited tour capacity, these tours often sell out early. Please purchase tickets online, ahead of time.

The main floor and lower level of the mansion are wheelchair accessible. The Second, Third Floor, and Attic are not wheelchair accessible, there are videos available upon request that show these floors. Please also see our Limited Mobility pricing.
