Event description
Explore the Gibson House and the gay subculture of early-twentieth-century Boston through museum founder, Charlie Gibson's eyes.

About this Event

The story of the museum's founder is one of legacy and family history; of the fading grandeur of Victorian-era Boston; and of the role gay men, like Charlie, had in the historic preservation movement. This unique specialty house tour is not to be missed!

*Tours require a minimum of four pre-registered guests to run. Ticket price will be refunded or transferred to a subsequent tour if a tour is cancelled due to low registration.

Regular and specialty tours are also available for private groups by appointment. For more information and to arrange a tour, contact info@thegibsonhouse.org.

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. Visitors experience the house through guided tours that interpret class and culture through the stories and objects of the people who lived and worked there.
