  • Great tour if you are a fan of Little Women (which my wife is). The tour guide is knowledgeable and friendly. Building is 80%the original items. Definitely worth a visit. Sorry no pictures allowed. 😋
  • We go every year for their Christmas program. The tour is lead by members of the Alcott family , including Louisa herself. Each room of the house has an Alcott to introduce themselves to you and explain information about their family's life, Orchard House, and speak about Little Women. You step back in time and they treat you as if you were one of their contemporaries stopping by to visit. Advanced tickets can be bought online and are highly recommended, especially for the Christmas program which is held on four days in December. If you buy advanced tickets you are offered a 10% off coupon to use that day in their gift shop. Many of Alcott's books and books about her work are available. Some period toys that the Alcott sisters would have been familiar with, as well as post cards and magnets. A personal favorite must-have treat is the package of heart-shaped shortbread cookies baked locally. We leave with a package for each of our family members. They have become part of our Orchard House tradition.
