We went as a family of four to the Mansion for the first time after living here part time for over 28 years. The tour was amazing as is the home of Charles Conrad who designed Kalispell. The tour guide was from Kalispell and she knew her history about the home of the founding father of Kalispell. Along with anecdotes... More

Kalispell is a town steeped in western history of trappers, ranchers, prospectors and the growth of railroads. It was founded by Conrad in the early 1880s. The jewel of the town is the Conrad Mansion, completed in 1895. If you like the elegance and grandeur of turn-of-the-century homes, don't miss a guided tour of this mansion turned museum. Our tour...

Love this place. If you're interested in local history, this should definitely be worth your time. They have interesting special collections displayed several times each year such as historical fashion or Christmas decorations.

The gardens are lovely to walk through and the tour gives a nice bit of local history. The mansion is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Amazing historical home replete with ghost stories and a few bumps in the night if you do the Halloween tour. Knowledgeable docents. If you are a history buff this is a must see in Kalispell.

Beautiful house, hohum ghost stories, tour guides not helpful with questions. Got the impression that they just wanted you to come back and pay more to get questions answered.

Thank you for taking time to review your visit. Due to the time constraints on the ghost tours, with a new tour starting every 15 minutes, the guides are not able to take time to answer questions. They would like to, as they love talking about the history and the Mansion; however, it causes a chain reaction and backs up... More

If you like to see an old house in good condition, you should go. The place is OK and not all the stuff are original. It is a little bid out of the way. So, if you are short of time, you can pass this one. Also part of the place was gone or in private hand which make me... More

Thank you for taking time to review your visit. The Conrad Mansion Museum was completed in 1895 for Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Conrad and had remained in the Conrad family until 1974 when Alicia Conrad, the youngest daughter, donated the home to the city of Kalispell. Over 90% of the items in the Mansion did originally belong to the... More

I have toured many mansions, by far, this place is not staged. Cindy, our guide, was informative, answering every question with passion. One could tell she has quite a connection to the Conrad Mansion. The grounds are well maintained. The interior exudes the craftsmanship of bygone days. The history of the family is interesting and the stories shout of Mr.... More
