We’re headed behind the scenes, or rather to-the-scenes, of our favorite Greta Gerwig movie, Little Women! Join us virtually to commemorate the anniversary of the film’s release and the movie-magic role the Gibson House Museum played. We'll reveal some of the behind-the-scenes happenings, speak on the Gibson House’s own history, and answer questions from you, our curious audience! What it was like to turn Back Bay into Victorian New York? Did they really light Jo’s skirt on fire in the house? How historically accurate were the Gibson House scenes? Tune in to find out!
Tickets are $5. This event will take place via Zoom. Please be sure to download and acquaint yourself with the platform prior to the program. Access information will be sent to those who register.

The Gibson House is a historic house museum located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. Now a National Historic Landmark, the home served as residence to three generations of Gibson family members and their household staff between 1859 and 1954. The Museum’s four floors of period rooms, including the original kitchen, are a time capsule of domestic life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The museum is currently closed for tours and reopening plans will be announced when available. You can also explore the house virtually through our website, social media, and virtual programs at thegibsonhouse.org.
