This is a very interesting house showing you the changes the family and the history of life around the cape. There are very knowledgeable docents who give you a lot of information about the family. They are distant descendants.

If you are into early U.S. or just Massachusetts history add this to your must visit list. each room covers different generations of this early American family that has ties to Mayflower decedents and accomplishments that made a difference for early settlers. I wrote less than one hour for the tour because you may just listen and walk through the home listening to your guide and not ask any questions but if you have questions the guides are extremely knowledgeable and willing to spend whatever time you want discussing the history of this family and early sandwich MA.

A friend and I stopped by about 3 on a Thursday. We were the only ones on the tour and truly enjoyed it. Did you know that Bill Nye the Science guy is related to the original Nye's of Sandwich? One of the wallpapers found in the house has been recreated by one of the big name companies. We learned a bunch about the history of the town. It was fun to see what they found under the floorboards. Beautiful quilts, one even made by someone with her toes, because she had limit used her hands. They are open Tuesday to Saturday 11-4. They close for the season at the end of Oct. THere is a special day October 20th, where people will dress in colonial costumes and cook in the fireplace traditional foods. I plan to go again.

The Nye House house is special in how it weaves together the history of a family with that of a region, a country, and the spirit of exploration itself. Its modest size and rusticity are refreshing - this isn't a sprawling estate that makes visitors feel small and unworthy. It's loaded with wonderful detail and a sense of tactility - rare in its intimacy.
