The Missouri Governor’s Mansion is located at 100 Madison Street in Jefferson City.  Located on 10 acres overlooking the Missouri River and the State Capitol, it is the home of the Governor and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Visitors to the Missouri Governor’s Mansion are welcomed by a talented group of volunteers known as docents.  Nearly 70 docents provide the public tour program and assist at special events throughout the year.  Docents are trainers, educators, tour guides, researchers, public relations specialists and ambassadors for Jefferson City.  They welcome more than 70,000 visitors annually and bring history alive at the home of the First Family.

Inside the walls of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion, guests will have the opportunity to step back in time and learn about our state’s history.  The Missouri Governor’s Mansion is one of a few executive residences in the United States open to the public.  Tour reservations are required for all visitors and must be made at least 24 hours in advance.  It is recommended that you schedule some additional time in between your tours because of the distance between the Capitol and the Governor’s Mansion.

Free guided tours are given by our volunteer docents thanks to the support of the Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion Docent program.  Once you have booked your tour, please read all information carefully to fully understand the Mansion guidelines.

Missouri Governor’s Mansion guided tours are provided throughout the year.  Please see our schedule below for more information.  Tour reservations are required. A photo ID and/or additional information may be required before entering for security purposes.
