Salem Sampler & the Empresses of China

Tuesday, November 13


Travel to northeast MA as we sample some of the history & culture Salem has to offer!  Spend the afternoon exploring the Peabody Essex Museum.  The museum’s 2.4-million-dollar collection ranks among the finest of its kind.  Browse the extensive exhibit halls including the visiting exhibit, Empresses of China’s Forbidden City, this exhibition is the first to explore the role of empresses in shaping China’s last dynasty, the Qing dynasty, from 1644 to 1912. Nearly 200 spectacular objects from the Palace Museum tell the little-known stories of how imperial women influenced court politics, art and religion.  Enjoy a guided tour of this limited time exhibit, free time to explore the remainder of the museum and a guided tour of the Yin Yu Tang house, a gorgeous 200-year-old Chinese home, brought to America, preserved and re-erected at the Peabody Essex Museum.  Celebrate 350 years of history at the House of Seven Gables as they celebrate their anniversary year! The beautiful mansion, built in 1668 by a weathly sea captain, is located at the foot of Salem Harbor and is best known as the inspiration behind Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “The House of Seven Gables”. Enjoy a tour of this lovely, historic home and then take a short stroll across the garden to tour the Nathaniel Hawthorne Birthplace, a beautiful red Georgian style home circa 1750. Due to the historic nature of these homes, there are some stairs involved
