Did you know that the Conrad’s youngest child, Alicia, believed in fairies? She would let the flowers and plants in the garden grow tall so the fairies could build their magical homes without being seen. Even now, on the most beautiful and warm days of summer we see fairy light coming from the gardens. On very special evenings this summer, you can walk in the gardens and see the fairy houses…
Fairy walks are a free event and are family friendly. Check back often for upcoming Fairy Walk dates this summer.
In partnership with the Northwest Montana History Museum and the Hockaday Museum of Art, the Conrad Mansion will be participating in Local’s Day! Anyone with a Montana ID will have a reduced ticket price to all three of the Kalispell’s museums. Local’s Day is a fun way to learn about Kalispell’s history and culture while winning fun prizes and completing a scavenger hunt!
October 27th and October 28th, 2023
The number one question Mansion staff and volunteers are asked: Is it haunted?
Every October, guests are invited to walk the darkened halls with a glimmer of candlelight to guide them. Once inside a room, guests will hear Conrad family ghost stories and other strange happenings that occurred in the Mansion. Who knows, maybe you’ll have your own paranormal experience?
Ghost Tours are a family friendly event; however, we do not recommend children under 10 attending. Tours are offered every 15 minutes and last about one hour. All proceeds benefit the Conrad Mansion.
Tickets will go on sale September 15th, 2023.
