Take this opportunity to visit the museum at your own pace. Stroll through the period rooms and get a taste of the house’s rich history and art. This year’s event features a pop-up exhibition featuring recent research into the Nichols family belongings from Asia.
The event is free but tickets are required. The event is first-come-first-served and there may be delays due to capacity restrictions.
This program is presented in tandem with a free virtual talk that highlights Nichols House Museum belongings from Asia and connections between the Nichols family and a Japanese author.
The Nichols House Museum was home to landscape gardener, suffragist, and pacifist Rose Standish Nichols and her family. The museum occupies an 1804 Bulfinch townhouse, among the earliest of its kind on Beacon Hill. Furnished with an original collection, the interiors reflect the cultural values and changing tastes across two generations of Nichols ownership. Highlights include sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, stories of the family and domestic staff, and welcoming guides.
