From Memorial Day through Labor Day, Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont offers family tours. This year’s theme is World Travels and highlights Gari and Corinne Melchers’ many trips that inspired their life here at Belmont.  This inter-generational experience allows visitors of all ages to engage in a guided tour of the historic house museum and art gallery spaces. Tours are customized to meet a family’s needs and interests and are approximately one hour in length. Included in regular admission price, prior registration for family tours is not necessary. After the tour, guests are encouraged to extend their experience by sketching outside or exploring the garden while working on our scavenger hunt. Family tours are available at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. every day except for Wednesdays.
