  • Whistler's birthplace, mainly an art gallery. Beautifully maintained inside and out. Nice location to hold an event. Our docent was very knowledgeable of art history of their holdings. I would have liked to hear more about the building's history.
  • This is a charming and historic house with a lot of art to see. The staff who run it are super friendly and guided us through the history.
