The Glensheen Mansion staff put in a lot of effort to decorating the historic mansion for the holiday season. Unfortunately, not log after they opened for in person tours, the state of Minnesota entered another lockdown due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Last week, Governor Walz lifted restrictions and beginning this weekend the Glensheen Mansion will be open for in person, self guided tours.

There are several different options for guests. First is the "Classic Tour" which features 25 Christmas Trees, 25 hidden elves, immerse yourself in Condgon family Christmas stories and more. Cost for this tour is $18 for adults 16 and older, $16 for seniors, ages 6-15 is $7, and children 5 and under are free.

There also is an option to take the full mansion tour which includes the Christmas Classic Tour, but also gives you access to the entire mansion, including the previously closed third floor and attic. The cost of this tour is $30 for adults, $28 for seniors & veterans, $19 for youth, and once again children 5 and under are free.

There are also options to bring your own snowshoes and get admission into the grounds. The Glensheen offers 12 acres of beautiful land on the shore of Lake Superior. If you want to skip the tour and just walk the grounds it's only $5 for admission.

Due to capacity limitations, all tour tickets will only be sold onsite. Glensheen reopens Saturday January 16 and will continue until March. Tours are available Saturdays and Sundays between 9am-5pm, with the last ticket being sold at 4:30pm.
