I have just gotten tired of not having a good list of historic 

house museums. 

So, I'm putting one together. Of course, it is new, so it is 

NOT complete yet. 

However, at least there is something more out there right 

now then what I've found for the non-trade person. 

I absolutely know that I am missing house museums. 

Please send me more listings here or at 


The link tab is at the top of the page, and will be permanent. Or. Click Here!
