Seven historic sites in Queens invite you to celebrate the holiday season and learn about the houses and their unique histories. Each site will offer special activities and delicious refreshments at this fun-filled annual event. A trolley will be available to take visitors from one historic house to the next.  The participating sites include: The Kingsland Homestead, Voelker Orth Museum, Bird Sanctuary & Victorian Garden, Lewis H. Latimer House Museum, Friends Meeting House, Flushing Town Hall, the Bowne House, and, new this year, the Louis Armstrong House Museum.  


Advance all-access tickets are $10 and provide admission to all seven sites. These tickets can be purchased online at or from the Queens Historical Society. Tickets will be sold at the door on December 8th for $12.  (Children under 12 are free with an accompanying adult.) Due to the popularity of the Holiday House Tours, advance tickets are recommended. A complimentary trolley service from each site is included with all tour tickets, and holiday treats at each historic house.
