The Nichols House Museum is a museum at 55 Mount Vernon Street on Beacon Hill in Boston, Massachusetts. The house in which it is located was designed by the architect Charles Bulfinch, and built by Jonathan Mason, the politician, in 1804. The building was renovated in 1830. The museum is named for Rose Standish Nichols (1872–1960), the renowned landscape gardener, suffragist, pacifist, and member of the Cornish Art Colony, who lived in the house between 1885 and 1960. She left the house to be used as a museum after her death. The museum preserves the lifestyle of the American upper class during Nichols' lifetime, with turn-of-the-century period rooms.

Had a wonderful time. I enjoy observing the past life of how people lived in the late 18th century.

This house was bequeathed in the will of the daughter, it has original furniture for her as well as her parents so it's a bit more authentic than some of the other houses around. Interesting tour and energetic tour guide. It's a nice house to visit if you're in Boston looking for something to do.

Not the usual big slick museum. Gave a great insight into a professional middle-class family home late 19th century early 20th century.

It's a beautiful building with a very knowledgeable staff. We visited on Free Fun Friday and took their (abbreviated?) tour. We didn't hear much about Rose and her family during the tour. A perfect time to chat about them would have been while we waited outside for the next tour to begin.
