The Field House Museum is now offering virtual tours of the historic house as a safe option for those interested in learning our diverse history. A docent will guide you through the home while informing you about the lives of the Field family who once lived in the rowhouse.
To purchase tickets for a virtual tour, please contact a staff member at 314-421-4689. Tours will be conducted via Zoom.
In response to COVID-19, the Field House Museum developed a YouTube Channel to allow visitors to enjoy aspects of the Museum from the safety of their homes.
