Peek inside closets, pull aside curtains, and explore behind the scenes in the Blanchard House and Andover Historical Society.

Here’s your chance to give in to that irresistible urge to look behind the “staff only” and “no entry” signs you always see in museums.

What will you find?

What treasures lie in store rooms and archives?

What secrets are hidden behind the closed doors?

Where is the Blanchard house’s “Harry Potter closet?”

Andover Historical is offering Behind the Scenes tours with a fun twist.

As you tour the Blanchard house attics, closets, nooks and crannies, you’ll also hear stories about rarely seen collections items.

The stories will change with every tour, so there will always be something new to learn.

Maybe you’ll hear about a Civil War artifact, a pair of leather pants from the 1970s, or an early 20th century bob sled – each with a unique Andover story.

Upcoming Behind the Scenes tour days and times are:
Wednesday, July 13, 10-11am
Tuesday, July 26, 7-8pm
Tuesday, August 9, 1-2pm
Sunday, August 28, 1-2pm
