Whittier Home Museum Tours
The Whittier Home Museum is a National Historic Landmark located at 86 Friend Street, Amesbury MA. From 1836 until his death in 1892, John Greenleaf Whitter lived and wrote most of his poetry and prose here. The classic New England farmhouse retains the decor and structure of the home as Whittier and his family knew it during the mid- to late 1800s.
The Museum is open for tours from 11am to 4pm (last tour 3:30pm) on Saturdays, from May through October. The tours are conducted by knowledgeable docents and will captivate all ages as the home’s unique artifacts, authentic furnishings, and personal effects bring it to life.
