The Gibson House has only a few open hours for tours but if you can work it in it is very worth your time and the few dollars you must pay. It's in the Back Bay neighborhood on Beacon Street and very close to Boston's Public Garden. It's a grand old house that was lived in by three generations of the same family that originally had it constructed about 150 years ago and before it was turned into a museum. It has six floors but only the bottom four floors are open to the public tours. We were blessed to have only one other couple there for our tour and the young woman who guided us around for a full hour was both knowledgeable and delightful. She gladly answered all our questions and told us about the house, the furniture, the heating system in the basement, the family, the servants, the unusual things in the house, and how it became a museum. Very good tour. We loved it and strongly recommend the Gibson House.
