One rarely sees rooms and decor so ornate and costly in an American home from the 1860's. Memorable. Like a set design by Cedric Gibbons. But there aren't many rooms and one is soon done. The docents were good company for my 15 minutes.
Looking at the reviews this place sounded amazing! When we got there all of the rooms were roped off and you only get a little peek so you can't even walk around the rooms I think only one was open the master bedroom...many rooms were...More
45 minute guided tours for groups (12 max) are given every hour. Our guide Joy was very informative and well-spoken. The personal history of this mid-nineteenth century home is fascinating. The restoration is incredible and ongoing. The fact that most of the original furnishings were...More

The tour was $16/adult and we enjoyed seeing the inside a lot. Very elaborate details and modern for the time it was built. The volunteer inside gave us a rundown of all the history of the home. Great details and well worth a visit. Nothing...More

Italian style mansion built 1860-61. First two floors are open to the public by tours. Much restoration has been done and more in progress. Only first floor is accessible. Docent was very knowledgeable. Nice gift shop. Street parking. No interior photos allowed.

I have only been to the Victoria Mansion, but the Longfellow house also sounds excellent. Maybe I'll get there on my next trip to Portland. But why choose just one? The Victoria Mansion tour lasted less than an hour, not counting some waiting time, so you should be able to visit both.
