The library’s Museum Pass program offers discount passes to CLAMS card holders for museums and activities both on the Cape and around the Boston area. We are excited to add another pass to the program! We now have discount passes to the House of the Seven Gables in Salem, Massachusetts.
This designated National Historic Landmark was built in 1668 by merchant and ship-owner John Turner. In 1910 philanthropist Caroline Emmerton restored the house and turned it into a museum with the express purpose of raising money to benefit immigrant families. This mission continues today with the Museum’s settlement programming – encouraging community conversation about immigration, providing ESL classes and more.
Of course, the House of the Seven Gables is best known as the setting of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel about the cursed Pyncheon family. You can learn more about the novel and Hawthorne’s connection to the mansion by visiting the website, www.7gables.org, or on your visit!
Before you go, be sure to check out our House of the Seven Gables Museum Pass for a discount on admission. The pass admits up to 4 people (2 adults and 2 children) at half price per person. Click here for more information or to make a reservation.
