Celebrate Preservation Month at Brucemore with free guided tours of the Mansion on Saturday, May 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 8 from noon to 3:00 p.m. Tours will begin approximately every 15 minutes with the last tour beginning at 3:00 p.m.* Tours will last approximately 30 minutes.

Explore over a century of Cedar Rapids history through the lives of the three families who called Brucemore home.  Follow a guide on a tour of the 21-room Queen Anne Mansion and investigate the art, furnishings, technology, architecture, surrounding landscape, and stories preserved at Brucemore. The Mansion tour provides a glimpse into the past and an incomparable way to understand modern Cedar Rapids and Eastern Iowa.

In 1971, the National Trust created Preservation Week to spotlight grassroots preservation efforts around the country, and has since grown into an annual celebration for local communities to honor their past and help build their future.
