19th Century Costume Guided Tour

Discover history as it comes alive and take a tour by a 19th century costume guide. Demonstrations of various household activities, and audio-visual presentations will take you back to daily life with the Bell family. Original furnishings and household trappings have revived the home’s 1870s appearance, affording guests the opportunity to spend a welcomed visit at “Melville House.”

Tours are conducted Tuesdays to Sundays from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Keep in mind that the last guided tour of the day is at 3:45 pm, unless it is otherwise posted.

Don’t forget to plan to stay for a lovely meal at The Exchange Cafe and visit the Museum Store for a souvenir of your experience. Both the restaurant and store are on the grounds.
