For forty-four years, Friends of the Missouri Governor’s Mansion and our volunteer docents have welcomed nearly 60,000 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.
We rely on over 65 volunteer docents who provide the public tour program at the Missouri Governor’s Mansion. Our Docents are trainers, educators, tour guides, researchers and ambassadors to everyone who visits the Mansion. They welcome more than 60,000 visitors annually sharing the building’s history and beauty.
