“Closing time but still gave us a tour!”

Vincent House Museum
Reviewed 4 October 2012

We arrived just before closing time but the docent still gave us a tour around the house and told us the history of the house and the people who lived there. It was fascinating and we're grateful she was kind enough to do this. Fascinating house and we learnt a lot about the history of Cape houses which we then noticed everywhere!

The Vincent house was built in the 1600s and it is furnished with items that replicated those in that existe in the house. The tour was brief--about 30 minutes--but very informative. The tourguide was very knowledgeable and interesting. All the downstairs rooms were viewed anf the guise explained the origin of the frnishings. When visiting Edgartown, MA you need to take this tour--you won't regret it. The cost for this tour was $5.00.

We bought the tour package that included admission to the Old Whaling Church, The Daniel Fisher House, The Edgartown Lighthouse, The Martha's Vineyard Museum, and the Old Sculpin Gallery. We visited the Lighthouse, the Museum and the Gallery before making it over to the Vincent House. The tour was a good half hour if not a little longer, and the guide who gave it to us was very knowledgeable about the time period, the history of the house, and the family history. She shared all sorts of stories with us, along with the facts that were presented, and answered all sorts of curious questions that I had in a very pleasant manner. She went on to give us a tour of the Daniel Fisher House and the Old Whaling church, and we enjoyed our tour with her very much.

For $10, you get a guided tour of the Vincent house (c, 1671) and the adjacent Fisher house and "Whaling Church" (both early 1800s),
The tours start in, and concentrate on, the Vincent house, a very well preserved Cape Cod style house, with some period furnishings. Our guide was very knowledgable and articulate, happy and able to answer questions.
We tried to visit on a Saturday, when they were closed. There was no sign giving hours or details, We tried again on Monday, with better luck. They were open at 11:00, and had hourly tours, lasting almost an hour.

We bought the $15 tour package which included Vincent House, the Dr. Daniel Fisher House, The Old Whaling Church, Martha's Vineyard Museum, the Old Sculpin Gallery, and the Edgartown Lighthouse. The Vincent House was our first stop, and the most interesting.

The tour there lasted about 30 minutes, and the tour guide was knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information about the house and the period, as well as about architecture in general. This tour was combined with the Old Whaling Church and the Fisher House tours, and each of those lasted 15 minutes, for a total of one hour. We could have walked through the Vincent house without the tour, but I'm glad we chose the tour instead as I learned so much more than I would have otherwise.
