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. Follow the link below to discover an array of videos that explore the works of Eugene Field, watch recordings from our Speaker Series, and get inspired by our Local Authors Spotlight.
