Delight in the magic of the season with costumes from BTC’s Through the Tulle costume exhibition, all carefully paired to highlight each period room’s Impressionist art, aesthetic, color palette, and mood. This one-hour tour begins outside the Carriage Porch, where visitors can watch dancers will perform excerpts of The Nutcracker, complete with twirling, leaping, and pirouetting in their very own snow globe. Dress warmly to be transported to New York City’s Fifth Avenue for an opulent and enchanting window display like none other as safely distanced guests view the scene outdoors through the glass panes.

After the performance, visitors will enter the historic house for a 30-minute self-guided tour of the first floor of this special exhibition. At the end of the tour, exit through the original front door where a visitor will be waiting.

Members and Children | $20
