ST. PAUL (WCCO) — The Minnesota Governor’s Residence is turning 100. And to celebrate, it’s being opened to the public.

They’re offering rare public tours of the residence six times this summer, starting Tuesday.

There’s a 20-minute guided tour of the residence and the gardens are open, as well.

But space is limited, and you need to reserve a spot in advance.

“There’s a lot of beautiful homes here on Summit. And I just figured this would be really beautiful, and it was, it was gorgeous,” said Dianne Newell, of Elk River.

The tour is limited to the main floor and the gardens.

The governor’s kitchen and living quarters are off limits.
