Gibson House Museum

The Gibson House, a historic home built in 1860, sits as a museum in Back Bay and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. The single-family residence was designed with an Italian Renaissance style by Boston architect Edward Clarke Cabot, and features a kitchen, butler's pantry, scullery, private quarters and formal rooms. Built of brownstone and red brick, its interiors are made up of its original furnishings such as elegant wallpapers, nineteenth-century family heirlooms, photographs, porcelain and vintage paintings. History buffs will enjoy getting an up-close-and-personal look into the domestic life of the affluent Bostonians of the 1800s. All four floors are open to the public for guided tours (no elevator service) year-round and begin between 1 and 3 p.m. daily.
