For a Limited Time! 

 

This April, Boscobel House and Gardens will open in more ways than ever before. In addition to the elegant Federal-era interiors for which Boscobel is so beloved, Open House Tours will offer access to rarely seen areas. In the company of expert guides, visitors will peek into private spaces, from ingeniously designed compartments in fine furniture to passageways most often used by servants.

 

“Boscobel was built much like a stage set for its original owners,” explains Executive Director Steven Miller. “Our new Open House Tours are designed to give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the the museum and at history.”

 

Open House Tours are only offered April 1 through April 30, 10-4pm (Boscobel is closed on Tuesdays.) Each guided tour is approximately one hour in length.  Reservations are not necessary; tickets can be purchased in person or online at Boscobel.org. Friends of Boscobel members and children 5 and under are FREE. Memberships are available for purchase HERE.

Bring your water bottle and work gloves, and wear sturdy shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Tools will be provided to clear overgrowth and downed branches.
