Event Description

Welcome to Brucemore! Enjoy a self-guided tour of the Queen Anne style mansion. Dive into more than a century of history and learn about the lives of three influential families in Cedar Rapids. Many guests spend between 30-45 minutes for their visit. Tours include a tour book and knowledgeable staff and docents in the house to answer questions. After your tour, we hope you will visit the grounds, at no additional cost. Masks are required during indoor programming, including tours of the mansion.
