This is truly a gem in the Bay area. Tells the tortured history of the Winchester gun maker family. Irrespective of your interest in guns or not, worth a visit to see the complex house built by troubled minds with lots of money. Easy access...More

I really enjoyed my visit to the Winchester Mystery House. The $49 "Explore More Tour" includes the basic "Mansion Tour". Although you briefly pass through some of the same spaces on both tours, they are very different in focus. The grounds are also very well...More
