Take a guided tour of the first and second floors of the 1879 Physick House Museum, for an in-depth look at Victorian architecture and the period, reflecting one Victorian family’s lifestyle, and detailing the way the Physick family and their household lived, worked and spent their leisure time. Built in 1879, the 18-room mansion is an architectural wonder built by famed American architect Frank Furness and is one of the best examples of Victorian Stick Style architecture in the country. In 2020-21 the tour them “This Old House” focuses on the Physick House and the organization, Cape May MAC, that lovingly restored it 50 years ago and continues to do so today.


The Work & Life of Dr. Physick’s Employees

Each year, our tour of the Physick House Museum highlights a particular aspect of Victorian life and
culture.  Our tour this year focuses on the Physick House staff. Like many upper-class families of the era, Dr. Physick hired numerous local people to work at his estate. Learn about the staff, their duties, and their importance to the Physick family and the community.
