The Marblehead Museum consists of several buildings including the Jeremiah Lee Mansion and the museum across the street. Check online for hours and reservations but don't miss this opportunity to step into an authentic mansion from Marblehead's booming 18th century.

Step back in time and imagine being the one to dance in gowns and balance on elegant stairs. Wander the gardens among plants original from the 18th century. Original wallpaper still hanging!

The woodwork on the staircase & downstairs is worth the visit alone. The best historic house in the area. Good insight into the history of the area

We've wanted to visit the mansion but it's always been closed when we were in Marblehead. We were the only people to visit the afternoon we were there so we had the tour guide all to our selves and she gave us an almost two hour tour. The Mansion has too many features to list here but it's worth the... More

A tour of the Jeremiah Lee Mansion is a great insight to our history. I was not aware of the significance of Jeremiah Lee and the role he played in the American Revolution. The tour guides are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about giving a tour of this beautiful historic home.

One of the few place to tour in Marblehead. We were able to tour all three levels. Not always the case in some mansions. Most all of the furnishings are not original to the house. Got a fairly good overview of the family. We would liked to have learned more about the house itself, but limited information on many of... More

House, collections and guides add up to a great experience. The Lee familly occupied the house for a relatively short period, after which it passed through a succession of owners until providentially it was bought and rescued. The house itself is the choef exhibit, showing how the rich of the 1760s could live -- the space, the decorations, and the... More

In early Marblehead, we had some successful merchants. With the success certainly came the finer things of life. You can view how a successful merchant used his resources to build at that time one of the best residences in Marblehead. It is a short visit but another reason to allow you to " Complete Marblehead"

Who would have thun k that lowly Marblehead would know of such colonial splendor? Take a trip back in time. This is a great way to spend a half hour.

For a small fee (children free), take a fun and informative guided tour through 3 full stories of a late 18th century Georgian style Colonial mansion. With intact period wallpaper, fascinating stories and beautifully displayed artifacts in the home of the region's richest man in those days, this is a lovely way to pass some quality time in "Old Town"...
