Visit the Barker Mansion
Please join us for a guided tour at 1 pm Central Time, Tuesdays through Saturdays. Tour lasts one hour and will be your most complete look at the grand mansion. Tour is led by a trained heritage interpreter.
We offer self-guided tours from 11 am to 3 pm Central Time on Saturdays. Cost for both above mentioned tours is $8 per adult and $5 per youth and senior.
Please note that the mansion will be closed on the following Saturdays due to special events: March 18, May 27, June 24 and August 19. In addition to offering tours, we also serve as a venue for weddings and private parties. We do our best to showcase the mansion to visitors while maintaing privacy for the specially-booked events. There may be times, however, when a small portion of the mansion is inaccessible to the general public due to rentals. In this case, we will offer a discounted admission for tours. Thank you for understanding.
The mansion can be viewed during these tour times only, and we cannot accept early arrivals ealier than ten minutes prior to tour start as we do not have an adequate waiting area. If the door is locked, simply ring the bell and we’ll let you in. Please note that the mansion is closed on Sundays and Mondays during the off-season.
