Tours

It was announced in July that all Governor’s Mansion Foundation (GMF) events held at the Executive Mansion (tours, concerts, annual social events to name a few) are cancelled until at least January 2021. This is in response to the COVID 19 stay-at-home statewide order set in March 2020.

Docents from the Governor’s Mansion Foundation offer tours of the Washington State Governor’s Mansion on most Wednesdays throughout the year (except holidays and the month of August). Tours are free and last approximately 45-60 minutes.

The Mansion can only be visited as part of a guided tour.

Adult tour guests must present photo identification and all visitors under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. No umbrellas, strollers, or food/drink will be allowed on the tour. The Mansion is accessible to wheelchairs and walkers. Visitors must walk a 200-yard incline up to the entrance.
