Fascinating - and the gift store is good too! No coffee shop, however.

Parking on street was really easy (we went on a Thursday morning). The tour was great- really informational. The mansion is very worth seeing.

My husband walks with difficulty, and the house in not handicapped accessible and we knew that in advance. That said, we followed the arrow pointing up the stairs to the front door and climbed the outside stairs. Someone unlocked the door and told us to go back down the stairs to the gift shop where the tour starts. We did that, joined the guide and had to walk back up the front steps to go back inside. Some signage (or sensitivity on the part of the person in the mansion) would have been helpful. Otherwise, the tour was interesting.

The mansion is unbelievably ornate and the docent was very knowledgeable about the history of the mansion. I highly recommend this for Portland visitors.

From Our Editors

When most people think of Italian villas, elaborate textiles, and Turkish smoking rooms, they don't picture them in the United States. But they used to be. The Victoria Mansion showcases the grandeur of art, design, and architecture before the Civil War. Based in the 19th-century Morse-Libby house, the museum is now open to the public, although it was once in peril of being ripped down and turned into a gas station in 1940.

Visitors can tour the house to see rooms dripping with stained glass, gilded mirrors, and satin textiles. From the very large?chestnut paneled walls?to the very small?a silver salt cellar by Tiffany & Co.?the home displays the most opulent architecture and decor of the age. In addition to guided tours, the museum sponsors public lectures, discussion groups, and scholarly symposiums on 19th-century topics, like the mansion's artwork.
