This popular historical attraction located in the heart of the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston is home to four floors of furniture, artifacts and decor that date back to the 1800s. Visitors can explore this popular attraction on guided tours that detail the life and times and the famous Gibson Family. The home is essentially untouched, making it the perfect place to see how early aristocratic Americans lived.
Travelers can venture through the formal dining room and learn about the Italian Renaissance style that’s evident throughout the home. The brownstone and red brick façade was designed by the iconic architect Edward Clarke Cabot and remains one of the city’s most pristine nods to a long gone era of a life gilded in family heirlooms and European style.
The Gibson House Museum is located at 137 Beacon Street in Boston near the Public Garden. Tours are essential for entry and take place Wednesday through Sunday year-round at 1, 2 and 3pm. Admission costs $9 for adults and $6 for seniors and students. The museum is not wheelchair accessible, as there is no elevator.
