This is a wonderful home, lovingly restored to it's heyday. Beautiful furnishings. Pride of Modesto, cared for by numerous volunteers who give tours and have lots of information about the house and its original owners, the McHenry family.
The mchenry mansion is a great jewel in Modesto. The knowledgeable tour guides and the quirky gift shop are awesome attributes to the overall experience? I had a great time visiting with my mom and i will be returning again in the future.

Modesto in California is a "modest" sized city with a population of about 2,00,000. The McHenry Mansion, which was just adjacent to our hotel, is an elegant mansion in Modesto and very much a part of local history. The mansion has been very well maintained and there is no entry fee - it is free!
We dropped by this museum one day when we'd arrived too early for another appointment. What a surprise. Beautifully done. We were surprised to find a docent in the lower floor in WWII dress handing out brochures. Very informative. It ws all so interesting we almost missed our appointment.
The McHenry Mansion is super charming. Having a docent follow you from room to room like a conversational mugger, not so much. Still,worth a gander and a lovely space for formal events.
The staff is really good. They sit and let you enjoy the exhibits but if you have a question they are very helpful. Lots of good, interesting, high quality exibits.
The tour was very informative and entertaining. The mansion was decorated for Christmas and is just beautiful. I did A LOT of my Christmas shopping at the gift shop. Very unique selections and lots of seasonal items. I will be back there after the holidays for any gifts I need.
