Mansion Tour 


Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.

Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name; a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs, etc.  Highlights of the 65-minute tour include the “$25,000 Room,” hayloft, Sarah’s bedroom, Séance room, Morning room, Grand Ballroom, Venetian dining room, “Hall of Fires” and guest reception area, among many other destinations.

The Mansion Tour also includes admission to the Victorian Gardens, Historic Firearms Museum, and Specialty Gifts and Antique Products Museum.

Tour Duration: 1 Hour, 5 Minutes
Prices range from $20.00 to $39.00

Explore More Tour 


Available only for a limited time, this all-new tour is presented in combination with the Mansion Tour which first provides a historical overview to Sarah Winchester and her incredible house.  This exciting new experience takes guests to areas of the house never-before open to the public or which have been off limits for decades.  Following the Mansion Tour and a brief break, guests embark on the Explore More Tour where they will venture from the very bottom of the grand manor to the rooftops, in-between visiting lonely corridors, dark hideaways and foreboding attic spaces.

This home has the reputation for being haunted. Any spirits that may haunt the mansion no doubt favor the quiet, dim, rooms and areas you will visit on this tour, most of which have been undisturbed for more than a century. If you’re sensitive to the paranormal, the destinations on this tour should be to your liking. On the tour you will gradually make your way deeper and deeper into the mansion’s unfinished, unexplained and, some would say, unsettling spaces.

For safety concerns children 10 and under are not allowed on the Explore More Tour.

Tour Duration: 2 hours and 15 minutes
Prices range from $20.00 to $49.00

Note: Explore More is available only as an add on to the Mansion Tour.   Length of both tours combined is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes.
