We toured the house on a very humid Boston day. If was like walking back in time into a home that the owners had stepped out of and would soon return. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. Hour tour and well worth it.

The Gibson House Museum brings you back into another time in many ways.
I particularly loved the old embossed and gilded wallpaper in the beautiful entrance area. It looked like embossed leather.
The bedroom furniture is very original. Interesting also to see the kitchen and the laundry room.

Step back in time as you enter this house. Everything looks like the owner just stepped out. Simply amazing tour. See what it was like to live in 1860. Full of antiques, a must see.

This is closer to Boston Commons so it is easier to get too, however it seemed unkempt. The guide was nice and knowledgeable but you just got the feeling that it was the home of a spoiled snooty socialite that didn't want to work so he turned his home into a museum.

I made it a point to put this one on my "must see" list.
This home is a beauty that was built by a woman after her husband died, which rarely happened during this time period.
Many of the items are original to the home and fascinating to see.
Our tour guide was a young man who seemed knowledgeable for the most part, but couldn't answer a few of my questions.
I went early, and there was just one couple and myself, which made it nice and more personable.
