Self Guided Tours
Our self guided tours allow guests to explore this historic home at their own pace. The average tour time is 60-90 minutes, but some guests have lingered and discussed our unique architecture, exhibits and displays for more than two hours. It's completely up to you.
Docent tours are available by reservation for groups of 10 or more and must be reserved a minimum of two weeks in advance. Docents (tour guides) are specifically trained to provide an enriching and in-depth exploration of the exhibitions and the museum. Docents in period attire are available on certain days and make tours a fun and memorable experience. To book your tour, contact Holly O'Brien, Curator, at (253) 697-9468 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teachers and students are invited to explore Meeker Mansion Museum on Docent guided tours. Tours are designed for 4th grade and 7th grade students and include corresponding U.S. History curriculum and tour activities. We ask that school tours be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Special pricing is available for Field Trip programs. To book your Field Trip Tour, contact Holly O'Brien, Curator, at (253) 697-9468 or email@example.com.

The Grand Staircase in the Meeker Mansion is an example of the attention to detail that Eliza Jane Meeker invested in their new home.
1. No nails were used in the construction of the staircase.
2. The niche boasts a small mirror placed at a precise height enabling Eliza Jane to check her 4'8" appearance before leaving the house.
Dining with the Meekers
The Mansion Dining Room boasts the impressive Meeker dining table which could seat 18 guests.
The Meekers were known for hosting elaborate dinners in support of local schools and churches. Servingware sets are changed out seasonally.
The Meeker Bedroom features a walk in closet, portraits of Ezra and Eliza Jane, a fainting couch and their original bedroom set with oak carved leaves and brass accents.
The bedroom set was mass produced and guests have reported seeing identical furniture pieces in Port Townsend.
