We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new VIRTUAL TOUR of the Charnley-Persky House!

The virtual tour allows users to explore the interior of the entire house including the third floor that is not open for in-person tours. In addition, the virtual tour includes text that provides information on the house's architectural features.

“Through the virtual tour, we are able to share the Charnley-Persky House with people from all over the world who may not be able to visit and tour the house in person,” said Ben Thomas, executive director of the Charnley-Perksy House Museum Foundation and SAH.
