The Gibson House Museum is currently looking for part-time guides to workWednesday to Sunday. Candidates should feel comfortable with public speaking and have a strong interest in history, architecture, or decorative arts.


Located in Boston’s Back Bay, the Gibson House Museum is a time capsule of daily life during the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth centuries, reflecting three generations of Gibson family occupancy (1859–1954). Since 1957, it has been operated as a house museum, displaying four floors of Victorian and Edwardian decorative arts. The Gibson House is a National Historic Landmark and is registered on the Massachusetts State Register of Historic Places.


The position pays $35/day (hours are 12:30 to 4:15, and tours are offered Wed.-Sun. at 1:002:00, and 3:00 p.m.). Responsibilities include opening and closing the museum.
