I was with my family walking by. We did not enter. We spent some time reading the information boards with a bit of history. It is worth seeing it and can be incorporated with a downtown walk.

What a lovely mansion with fabulous views. No! You can’t see Russia from here. Governor Palin did not make that comment her impersonator Tina Fey made that viral comment. Be sure and watch for this piece of Alaskan history and architecture

Unlike the residences of most public figures, you can get right up close to this very attractive building (5 or 6 min walk from downtown). It has a well cared for totem pole at the side entrance, & classic Georgian features at the front.

The mansion looks a little like it was modeled after Mt. Vernon. The lack of obviuous security was a little surprising, but it may be subtle. You cannot tour, so it is interesting to see, but not a huge deal if you can't.

It was great walking around the building, but could not figure out if there were tours of the inside. Would have been better with a narrated inside tour.

This is a very attractive house with nice views. However, there are no tours. The sign on the door says, "private residence".

By all rights, the place where the Governor lives should be a nice place. The Alaska governor should be very comfortable here. Understated, but elegant.
