  • Great little historic house museum dating to the 1800s. Due to its limited ownership (only 2) it's managed to retain the vast majority of its original look. The guides are very knowledgeable and clearly enjoy telling the story of the house.
  • This house was bequeathed in the will of the daughter, it has original furniture for her as well as her parents so it's a bit more authentic than some of the other houses around. Interesting tour and energetic tour guide. It's a nice house to visit if you're in Boston looking for something to do.
  • Excellent look into life in Boston in the early 1900's
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the tour --raining outside and the new Director was very kind and helpful. I would go again and only wish the kitchen had been restored --more info about cooking, meals, and gardening during that period would be nice.
  • While the building is gorgeous and takes you back in time, the best part about the Nichols House is the story of the woman who lived there! My favorite historical home tour in Boston.
