  • Gibson House Museum is beautiful as well as furniture and was very nice. Decorated in Victorian style is kamoshidashite no good old days to the modern. I think at that time remains in the keynote. Are neatly stored, is great.

  • It was a good Victorian style house that belonged to Gibson Family. It was good as there are not much Victorian style house you can find in US. The tour guide was so nice and explained everything very good. He answered all of my questions. I would have given this place 5 if it wasn't expensive. (I found it expensive as it was $8 for students and 9 or 10 for adults). This place should be visited if you are interested in different kinds of interior design and old, fancy houses. Victorian tarzı, güzel, Gibson ailesine ait bir ev. Victorian tarzı ev Amerika'da çok bulunmadığı için güzel bir ev.Rehber çok iyiydi, her şeyi çok güzel açıkladı ve bütün sorularımızı cevapladı. 5 yıldız değil çünkü pahalıydı (Bence pahalıydı çünkü öğrenciye 8$ yetişkinlere de 9 ya da 10$'dı). Değişik iç dizaynları ve eski, görkemli evleri seviyorsanız gidilmeli.
  • It was really cool to see all these house and hear about the history. The walking gets to you but it’s worth it specially with an upbeat tour guide
  • Fantastic tour of this absolute gem...unchanged since the Gibson's turned it into a museum...is like they have just stepped out the house. Informative guide and a rare opportunity to see what home life was like in Boston for the well to do families of Back Bay. Well worth a visit and the $9 entrance fee for adults.
  • A historical place that exhibits the original housing style on Beacon Hill. Very detailed and well organized tour.
  • Fascinating time-capsule museum, a perfectly preserved window into life in Boston's Back Bay at the turn of the last century. Guided tours take about an hour and cost $9 which goes towards upkeep of this stately old mansion, but because of the way everything has been left undisturbed over the years, it literally feels like the inhabitants have just stepped out for a bit and could return at any moment.
