Christmas at the Victoria Mansion

Yes, the holidays are coming and I can think of no better way to get into the spirit of the season than with a tour of Portland’s Victoria Mansion all dressed in holiday garb. The National Historic Landmark, a Victorian treasure, opens for self-guided tours on Friday, Nov. 27, and remains open through Jan. 3.

This is the mansion’s 25th year of offering holiday tours, and the theme Let the Christmas Bells Ring: Celebrating 25 Years of Christmas at Victoria Mansion honors that, right down to the silver anniversary accents. Each year, local designers, decorators, and florists transform the mansion into an over-the-top Victorian holiday showcase.

For a real wing-ding, attend the annual Holiday Gala, on Dec. 3, from 6 to 8 p.m., when nibble and sip your way through the mansion for $50.

No reservations are necessary for the self-guided tours, offered daily, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Admission: Adults $15; AAA/Senior (62 and over) $13.50; $7 for Victoria Mansion members; $5 for children (6-17); and free for children under 6. $35 family ticket.
