A Lot of information about the life of a great woman writer. They have some of her original works too! In the heart of Amherst MA. will only take a couple of hours but worth the trip!

If you are into history, definitely check out this museum. The houses are in great condition and look as if they family just left! Kinda spooky in a way. Very interesting, amazingly preserved!

This museum is one of the best. Don't miss it if you are in western Massachusetts. The exhibits are notable and both homes, the Evergreens too, are like time capsules. All is authentic, real and highly educational. Even my teenaged daughters liked it!

In Amherst, Emily reigns supreme. We all acknowledge that we are fortunate to have had the Dickinson family in Amherst,. Touring her house is interesting for all ages because the docents are extremely well versed (pun intended) and combining that with a tour of the Evergreens next door is fascinating history.

For those of us who adore our Emily, visiting her home is like going to church. Her spirit comes alive as we see her favorite recipes - and taste her gingerbread. Her dress, also displayed, would fit a 12-year-old, it's that tiny.

Such an unpretentious home for such a towering literary figure.
