Adult Group Tours
Discover what daily life was really like for a wealthy merchant-class family and their Irish servants in the mid-19th century on a private guided tour of the house or neighborhood.
The Merchant’s House Museum’s 1832 landmark building and its original in situ 19th-century collection provide a wealth of teaching opportunities. Tours can be customized to fit the curriculum and students’ interests.
Students will take a trip back in time as they explore four floors of period rooms and experience daily life in the 19th century.
