From the moment you arrive, you step back in time. The young women docents are dressed in lovely period dresses. The furnishings and art in the museum are beautiful. As an added attraction, you are treated to a musical performance, first by a trio of...More

The costumed guides could have been "touristy" but I found that they helped to tell the story of the Governor's House. The building is beautifully preserved and the furnishings and art work are a must see. The gardens look amazing and I recommend allowing time...More

The restored mansion gives you a glimpse into the life of an earlier era. The furnishings were impressive. Attendants were dressed in period costumes giving it a cheesy feeling.

This museum and grounds is also known as the Governor' House. It's an hour or so well spent. It's a good museum for a medium sized city, but after St Petersburg, I admit to being a little jaded. Most of the paintings are more interesting...More

If you are looking for a collection of Russian art from 17 to 20 century this collection is very good. I personally like more modern pieces and collection of that is somewhat limited. You need a couple of hours to complete the visit. Definitely would...More
