Nichols House

Nichols House

The museum educates visitors by providing a unique glimpse into domestic life in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries on Boston's historic Beacon Hill. The House is furnished with priceless possessions gathered from every corner of the globe. They have been accumulated over several generations and include fine European and American wooden furniture from the 17th-19th centuries, ancestral portraits, Flemish tapestries, oriental rugs, European and Asian art, and works by America's foremost sculptor of the 19th century, Augustus Saint Gaudens.

We hope you enjoy our work.
