While Winchester Mystery House is closed to the public during the ongoing global health crisis, the attraction is offering guests a digital tour of the estate that can be enjoyed from the comfort of their own homes.

The tour is available online now, and will be accessible until Winchester Mystery House reopens to the public. The tour costs $5.99 to rent for 72 hours, or you can pay $13.99 to own it.

To offer extra flexibility for guests wanting to visit the estate when it reopens, the Mystery House is also offering a specially-priced ticket voucher that can be used at any time in the future with no blackout dates or restrictions. Vouchers are available for $26 ($13 off the box office price) and are valid through May 1, 2021.

“For nearly 100 years, passionate caretakers and skilled craftsmen have looked after Sarah’s mansion and offered informative tours in order to share her amazing story. We depend on our guests to help us continue her legacy and keep the history and intrigue of the house alive,” said Walter Magnuson, general manager. “We understand that these are uncertain times, but we hope you will consider supporting Winchester Mystery House by purchasing a voucher for a future visit, so we can continue to share this remarkable estate and history with generations to come.”

Guests and fans can also follow the house’s Facebook page for the chance to tune in for a walkthrough, which will stream on select days at 1 p.m., the 13th hour.

This is a so awesome of you all! I was so bummed when my husband and I had to cancel our 15th wedding anniversary trip. I was so looking forward to my first visit.
Thank you so much for thinking to do this.

I developed lessons using this video. Now the students may not complete the lessons because it is no longer free. I feel this is very unfair.
