Victoria Mansion, also known as the Morse-Libby House, is the finest example of residential design from the pre-Civil War era in America. With superb architecture and well-preserved original interiors that were among the most lavish and sophisticated in their day, it is an unparalleled document of America’s highest aspirations in architecture, interior design, and the decorative arts. Our history, a quick tour, and our present-day efforts at restoring the Mansion convey an impression of the significance of this unique site, which is of national and even international importance.

Volunteer guides available to give information. Not as large as I thought it would be, only a few rooms open to view. Not worth the cost of admission

There was no tour per se, there are excellent and knowledgeable docents throughout the house. This house is remarkable for only having 2 owners and that most of the furniture 95%, is in the house. If you are interested in architecture or furniture this is...More

I wouldn't have gone to Portland to see this, but it was a fun change of pace from eating and drinking! The house is incredibly impressive and well maintained!

Who doesn't like an extravagant display of wealth? If you're into interior decorating or architecture, it's worth a visit. The real show-stopper (for me) was the Turkish smoking lounge... definitely considering turning our attic into one after this trip.

Quite a mansion, but you won't know how beautiful till you are on the inside. It almost was destroyed to become a gas station. Every inch of walls and ceilings are hand painted with spectacular murals and "wallpaper". Woodwork is also fantastic. Hard to describe...More

Yes, but we got a groupon that discounted the fee. We also thought the fee was worth it. If you love this sort of thing, you will love this house.

When I went it was a guided tour. Took about 30 minutes if I remember right and one went every 15 minutes. It was quite nice to hear the history and see what all they were doing. I believe it was $16 per person or somewhere... More
