Winchester Mystery House, San José, California


SAN JOSE, California, United States, June 9, 2021 / – The Winchester Mystery House today announced the return of the mansion tour on Saturday, June 19. The guided tour of the mansion immerses guests in the heartbreaking, tenacious and inventive story of Sarah Winchester and explores the legends and traditions of her home. The guide-led experience gives guests access to areas of the mansion that have been closed since March 2020, including the 3rd and 4th floors which are allegedly the most paranormally active areas of the bizarre mansion. The revamped tour will also feature newly discovered details about the mysterious mansion.

Tickets will be available today at and include access to the Sarah Winchester Victorian Garden Tour.

The iconic Bay Area attraction had rotated to offer outdoor garden tours and self-guided tours with hosts stationed along routes during the pandemic. The return of the traditional Mansion Tour led by a guide is one that staff and customers have been looking forward to.

Winchester Mystery House General Manager Walter Magnuson said: “Since the very first visit to Winchester Mystery House in June 1923, we have guided over 13 million guests through our venues. While the self-guided tours were well received, we all missed the passion and expertise of our tour guides. Our guides spend weeks examining historical artifacts in our archives and preparing for customer questions. There is no better way to experience the house than to be guided by these captivating storytellers – the tour guides at Winchester Mystery House. ”

The mansion tour has been redesigned to prioritize the safety of guests and staff. As per state and county guidelines, tour groups are no longer limited to members of the same household, although tour capacity has been reduced to provide a more comfortable experience for guests.
