The Governor’s Mansion is a house museum, which means its open for free public tours. For groups of less than ten people, you can just show up at the gate at West Paces Ferry.
Reservations: For groups of more than ten people, you must make reservations before. Reservations can be done through this number: (404) 261-1776. We always advise guests to arrive before 11:00 AM, giving you ample time to complete the tour before it ends at 11:30 AM.
The Tours mainly blend guided and self-guided tours. There are docents stationed in every room to explain and teach about every collection. You may also decide to move from room to room at your own pace.
Guests should note that all their belongings are subject to security checks. No oversized bags or backpacks are allowed inside the mansion.
