The Boston House Museum Alliance presents its spring 2017 tour series. For these special tours, the Gibson House Museum, Nichols House Museum, Otis House Museum, and Paul Revere House Museum draw on their rich collections and stories to explore the occupations of the owners of these historic houses over four centuries.


In upper-middle-class, nineteenth-century households like the Gibsons,’ families functioned with a division of labor, each part of equal importance. This tour will explore how both the business pursuits of Charles Gibson, Sr., and the social- and domestic-management activities of Rosamond Warren Gibson kept the household running.


Tours are at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
$7 for adults; children under 15 free; tickets are sold separately at each site
