Photo - Glensheen

Tour Details

The Photo Tour is offered during the summer season and will relaunch in 2018.

You will experience stunning spaces, like the formal gardens and views of Lake Superior from Glensheen’s 100-foot pier. Guests will also have the chance to capture a crowd-favorite room inside the mansion: the Breakfast Room.
The Photo Tour offers you the freedom to take pictures in the most photogenic spots while providing time to freely experience the Midwest’s most visited house museum.
Professional and amateur photographers, alike, are welcomed. Photo tours are best for those who have toured Glensheen in the past and want to capture its beauty. All types of cameras and tripods are encouraged, as both indoor and outdoor locations will be visited.
