These special 50-minute tours begin every 15 minutes from 11am-3pm. The Victorians created elaborate rituals around the passing of a loved one. Docents will share proper Victorian mourning etiquette for home décor, clothing, funerals, and social behavior as well as superstitions, séances, mementos, and a few popular practices of the time that we would find bizarre today.
