Purchase TicketsTicket

Nooks and Crannies Tours are sold out for the Spring 2024 season. We will add more dates in the fall. Sign up for our email updates to make sure you don’t miss the fall dates announcement!

Satisfy your curiosity about Brucemore! This 90-minute all-access guided tour takes you across the estate and inside rarely-seen rooms of the mansion. Peek inside typically closed buildings built for servant housing or hobby use, discover the curiosities and oddities of the mansion, and get the answer to a frequently-asked question – what is behind that door?  As part of this tour, you will see the infamous mansion basement and experience the sights and sounds of a “rainstorm” in the Tahitian Room, which is an exclusive perk of the Nooks and Crannies tour!

This tour begins at the Carriage House and covers multiple buildings on the estate. Tickets for this special themed tour are available for advanced sale only. Space is limited and this tour frequently sells out.
