Winchester mystery House in San Jose, CA

With its labyrinth of 160 rooms, staircases leading to nowhere, and rumors of being haunted, it's no wonder the Winchester Mystery House draws big crowds to its tours year round. Built by the multi-millionaire 19th century heiress Sarah Winchester, an eccentric who suffered from grief over the deaths of her husband and child, the house once had as many as 600 rooms. Today, visitors can explore the lavish Victorian era gardens and grand mansion. Be sure to stick close to your tour guide, as the house is a literal maze of hallways and visitors can get lost.

    It depends on how much you'd like to see. The tour of the Victorian Gardens is self-guided, and there are a few different options for touring the Mansion, lasting between 45 and 65 minutes. You can also factor in spending time in the Winchester Gun Museum, Cafe and Gift Shop. In general, it's a good idea to plan spending a whole morning or afternoon at the Winchester Mystery House.
  • Will children enjoy visiting the House?

    Children under the age of 5 are allowed on the tours, with the exception of the Grand Estate Tour. Also, due to all of the stairs on the tour, strollers are not allowed. Despite all that, many children enjoy the mystery and intrigue surrounding the Mansion and its history. There are even special Birthday Party Packages available just for kids.
