The Kelton House Museum & Garden is a window that looks out onto another time, presenting a glimpse of Victorian life through the lens of a family that lived it. The home features possessions that the family actually used, from woven hair brooches to an intricate grandfather clock built in 1790. Each item's place within the home tells its own story about the family's lifestyle, and tour guides add to the experience by costuming themselves in period garb. But guided tours aren't the only way to experience the museum. The museum also offers an audio tour enhanced with a musical score and period-appropriate sound effects, such as clocks chiming and bells ringing to call the family to dinner.
