Calling all active duty military! Through the Blue Star Museums program, active duty military and their families may visit The Gamble House for free between Memorial Day and Labor Day, 2012. More than 1,500 museums participate nationwide.
On this tour you are invited behind the scenes to visit parts of the House not available on the 1-hour tour. You walk inside the rooms and, with flashlight in hand, examine at close quarters exquisite craftsman details. Your docent, wearing white gloves, will open doors and drawers to reveal gems that can only be seen close up. You have time to appreciate the ambience of this National Historic Landmark, and enjoy some light refreshments in the gallery.
Behind the Velvet Ropes 2½ hour tours are conducted by docents with years of experience and a great deal of passion. These longer tours allow them to share with you their own excitement and knowledge and show you details that can only be seen from a distance on regular tours.
