  • Terrific! My 11 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We live outside of Boston and have been doing lots of local exploring during Covid and found out about Gibson House while reading....  more »
  • We came for a one hour tour on a Sunday afternoon. Our tour guide was friendly, fun, and very knowledgeable. I hope I get to come back and take the other tours that this museum has to offer.  more »
  • A nice little hidden gem in Back Bay. Gorgeous brownstone that was solely owned by the Gibson family. Our guide Carlos was great and we learned a lot about Victorian life in Boston. Would highly recommend it!
  • Awesome! Glad to have taken the day to visit!
