This beautiful mansion on the shores of Lake Superior has tours that bring you back in time. You can just imagine the family when they played tennis in the back yard and smoked cigars in the beautifully panelled library. Great Tour!

The Glensheen mansion is one of those stops you have to at least do once. The mansion itself is absolutely beautiful and you get so much background and history on the tour. One thing the tour guides do not like to talk about is the famous murder that took place here. Do some reading beforehand so you have an understanding of what took place where regarding the murders. Definately not a place to take kids, they would get bored, plus you would be worried about them destroying things.

Had a vary nice and well informed tour guide when my school had a field day at the Estate, as well as an enjoyable trip looking through the mansion. The gift shop was small but well apointed and stocked. The view was absolutely wonderful. I am planning on going back with my family in the near future. I would definetly say stop here if you are planning a trip to Duluth.

The glensheen mansion is a very interesting place to visit. Not only is it huge and beautiful its full of mystery with the murders and all. When I first visited I did not think I would like it,of coarse I was young. I loved it and I think that even teenagers will find it interesting. I plan to go back and I will even take my kids when they get a little older.

We went for our school feild trip and it was the most awesome thing that I ever saw!!! It is so beautiful!!! But you should read the book about the murders before you go so during the tour you know which rooms and which steps that they were murdered in!!! It was awesome!! I would go again and again and again!!!!!!!! Please visit and find out for yourself!!!

This is a great tour for anyone who likes history, interior decor, architecture or just walking around someone else's house. You get a tour of the first 3 floors for $9.50 or a total tour of all 5 floors for $18.00. This was the setting to a 70's Patty Duke movie "You'll Like My Mother" and the sight of a real life murder...but don't ask your tour guide about the murders. They're not allowed to talk about them. Walk around the grounds and see their formal gardens, carrige house, boat house and a gorgeous view of lake superior. This is well worth the money. Younger children may not have the patience, however, and may feel stifled in the "don't touch a single thing" atmosphere.
