Completed in 1860, the Gibson House stands virtually untouched as a historic house museum in Back Bay. In 2001, the National Park Service designated Gibson House as a National Historic Landmark. A unique and unspoiled single-family residence, it retains its formal rooms, private quarters, and servant work areas occupied from the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Visitors enjoy a glimpse into the lives of a well-to-do Boston family and the individuals working as their domestic staff.

Four floors of the house are open to the public. The museum is open year-round for guided tours, special events, and research. Visits are by guided tour only Wednesday - Sunday at 1:00, 2:00, and 3:00 p.m.
