Victorian Secrets: The Unmentionable Tour

Largely based on the New York Times best selling book Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage & Manners by Therese Oneill, this VIP tour dishes the dirt on every day Victorian life. As we tour the Rosson House, you’ll learn about everything from why your knickers were crotchless to how to keep clean in a world of dust and manure. Learn about the uncomfortable, occasionally poisonous, and downright scandalous medical treatments. (Hysteria sufferers, we’re talking about you!)

Includes a visit to the attic and other spaces that regular visitors to the Rosson House don’t get to see!

After the tour, join us for a glass and some bites at the award winning Nobuo at Teeter House restaurant just a few steps away–included in the ticket price.

This exclusive tour will be limited to 6 guests each, due to City of Phoenix Fire Marshall regulations.
