Folks will soon have a chance to see a Duluth destination like never before.

Glensheen Mansion is turning off the lights and opening their doors to give guests a flashlight tour for the very first time.

And while it may sound a little spooky, officials with the mansion say it provides a whole different perspective of the historic estate.

"It's always just a little tense, but you get into looking at these artifacts and relics and you tend to relax as the tour goes on," said Lucie Amundsen, the marketing director at Glensheen. "We do say that the paintings come alive under the flashlight, but we're talking more of an artistic manner," she added with a laugh.

The first of six flashlight tours is being offered on February 28th and 7 p.m. For future dates, prices, and reservation information, click here.
