About the Full Mansion tour
The Full Mansion Tour is the best tour for a complete mansion experience.
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.
It includes all five floors of the mansion. Including the previously closed third floor and attic. PLUS, the grounds are included! Everything that is included in a Grounds Pass is also included on a Full Mansion tour.
The Third Floor showcases the Congdon Boys’ rooms and even a few rooms that have recently been restored back to their original glory. The attic exposes the bones of the home where you’ll see the steel and concrete that keep this home standing tall. Plus, in the attic there are many unique items such as the original rugs and rare furniture.
The Full Mansion tour is now completely self-guided due to COVID-19 health and safety regulations.
We encourage all visitors to consider conducting health screening before entering the facility.
