Virtual Visit Videos

 You can now experience Orchard House virtually via a 15-minute video tour with "Louisa May Alcott" herself -- portrayed by Orchard House Executive Director Jan Turnquist, who is world-renowned for her living history presentations (view trailer here) --  and a 20-minute video that provides an up close and personal tour of our rooms and artifacts (view trailer here).  Bonus free admission for a guided tour after Orchard House re-opens is also included.


All this for only $10 -- less than the cost of admission!


So far, our Virtual Visit Videos have been viewed by people across the United States as well as in Japan, Costa Rica, and New Zealand!  Educators can plan to share their computer screens during online learning sessions to watch these videos with their students, while "armchair travelers" can practically feel like they are here -- and even linger on images of rooms and artifacts.
