Twilight Tour

First and third Tuesdays, through May 21
6:30 p.m.
$15   Buy tickets

The mansion glows with warm lamplight as a Museum guide shares stories about how the Nickerson family lived and socialized during the evening hours. Twilight Tours include anecdotes about life during the Gilded Age—long before the arrival of television and computers—and a behind-the-scenes visit to Mr. Nickerson’s Billiards Room on the lower level.

Advance reservations are highly recommended.


Please note: The second Twilight Tour of April will take place on Wednesday, April 17 at 6:30 p.m., not on Tuesday, April 16.
