The New Mexico Governor's Mansion Holiday Open House (Tuesdays December 6 and 13, 1-3 pm) is an annual tradition. It is a free event and both adults and children are welcome. Docents will be present to answer questions about the history of New Mexico's three governors’ mansions over four centuries, and the current Mansion’s décor and artworks.

Piano music and light refreshments will be provided.

The Governor’s Mansion is located in Santa Fe at One Mansion Drive, off of Bishop’s Lodge Road, 1 ½ miles north of the plaza.
