Programs

In-person Offerings

Visitors will have the option to enjoy a guided tour or the gardens and grounds experience. Reservations are strongly suggested. PLEASE NOTE: The garden and grounds experience does not include access to the interior of Turner-Ingersoll Mansion a.k.a The House of the Seven Gables. The only way to access the interior of the mansion is with a guided tour.

Online reservations will be available on a rolling basis in 2021. We expect to release tickets mid-month for the upcoming month (i.e. September tickets will be available around August 15). If you’d like advance access to reservations, you can join us.

Each person in a party counts, regardless of age, and tickets are required for each person.

There will not be room to distance yourself from other visitors while on the guided tour.

We advise those who are unvaccinated and support anyone who feels more comfortable to continue to wear a mask.

The Museum Store will be open during operating days and hours.

Due to staff resources, we have limited time to answer phone calls and emails. Our website has the most up-to-date information to plan your visit.


What’s the Story?

Stories are at the core of what we do at The House of the Seven Gables. They are not just a part of our past, but also our present and future. In 2021, we are exploring the lore of our historic site and surrounding community.

We’re offering a range of programs from online lectures to an in-person MONOPOLY tournament. We hope you’ll join us to learn even more about Salem and our site’s legacy.


Community Conversations

In keeping with our Settlement mission, The Gables hosts a series of community dialogues to address topics in immigration and immigration reform. Unlike a traditional lecture, the Community Conversations encourage discussion between the speaker and audience members during the course of the presentation. In 2019, we were one of 32 historic sites in the country granted funding to share the Becoming American series.

Interactive Exhibitions

Over the past few years, The House of the Seven Gables has been creating an annual exhibition to highlight the unique aspects of the organization. You can check out the digital versions of those exhibits here. Click on the exhibit title to view.


Additional programming is planned with a goal to engage our diverse audience with the National Historic Landmark District historic site. Past events have included first-person interpretive experiences, community days, theatrical and musical experiences, and art events. Lectures outside of the Seven Lectures series that highlight the mission and vision of the organization have been offered by outside scholars and staff with particular areas of expertise.
