Proceeds will go to both the Moving Missouri Forward Foundation and The Friends Of the Missouri Governor's Mansion.
For forty-five years, Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion and our volunteer docents have welcomed nearly 50,000 visitors a year from around our state, nation and the world. Working in partnership with Missouri’s First Family and the State of Missouri, our mission is to preserve the Mansion’s history through stewardship of the building’s interior, its historical collections and educational programs.
The Missouri Governor’s Mansion is currently closed for public tours due to previously scheduled renovations. The Mansion will re-open for the spring season public tours in February 2024.
Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion, docents and Mansion staff look forward to sharing the People’s House with you again soon. Thank you for your patience!
