Background videos and tour were very interesting for older teens and adults. The history and background of the Stanfords and their house are definitely worth the free admission.

A great place to visit, but you will need to plan your visit as access is only at the designated tour times. The mansion is also used for events and would be a great place for a wedding.

Open Sundays--except Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year's Day. Good idea to call the Visitor Center the day before your visit 916.324.9266 and check if there are any ceremonial events which might limit visitation--but those... More
