Where are we going today?

You can't experience Brucemore by looking at a screen. Grab the family, take a tour of the mansion, stroll the gardens, pack a picnic, and attend outdoor theatre. Brucemore, a National Trust Historic Site in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, is a museum and so much more. As a community cultural center, Brucemore's 26-acres are alive with concerts, festivals, performances, and activities. So log off and come over to the big house. You deserve to see it live.

    Ken and I had two wonderful tours of Brucemore! (The regular one during the day, and the "hired help" one in the evening.) Both were expertly guided, very knowledgeable and answered questions readily. SO enjoyed both tours! Would love to take the "nooks and crannies" tour also if we ever return to Cedar Rapids. Highly recommend!

    My recent visit to Brucemore Mansion. Rude, pushy staff. A incompetent director and a lack of communication between all the staff that causes customers to be misinformed. I will never bring my family back to this place again and I don't recommend it to anyone visiting Cedar Rapids. I called ahead to get tour information and was told all the tours were open and to be there 15 minutes early and there wouldn't be a problem. We were there 15 minutes before the tour was set to start and we were not told where to purchase tickets or that the tour was...Read More

My recent visit to Brucemore Mansion. Rude, pushy staff. A incompetent director and a lack of communication between all the staff that causes customers to be misinformed. I will never bring my family back to this place again and I don't recommend it to anyone visiting Cedar Rapids. I called ahead to get tour information and was told all the tours were open and to be there 15 minutes early and there wouldn't be a problem. We were there 15 minutes before the tour was set to start and we were not told where to purchase tickets or that the tour was full until after the tour was about to start. We were literally pushed out the door after the tour guide asked for tickets, seconds before the tour started. At that point the guide rushed us to the door. I barely had a chance to get my coat put back on or get my 8 month old bundled up before we were pushed out the door. The door was quickly shut behind us and locked as if she thought we were gonna sneak back in after she was out of sight. Thoroughly DISGUSTED by the staff and treatment we received.
