Evidence of Program's Success

The National Trust for Historic Preservation challenged its historic sites to embrace their cultures. At Louis Dupuy's Hotel de Paris, the culture is food and drink (culinary history).

Each occurrence of the program (fourth Friday June-September) has been well attended and generated enough income to pay for the event and raise operating funds for museum operations.

This program is suspended indefinitely due to the pandemic.

Description

Tour content is multi-cultural and includes humanities topics, mining, decorative arts, architecture, historic preservation, women's history, Chinese history, French history, literature, and culinary history.

Due to the Public Health Order, the 2020 tour season opening was delayed. The museum is operating at a fraction of its former capacity. If variances remain in place, it is anticipated the museum will be open 100 days (down from 140+ days).

The pandemic has forced the closure of the 2nd story and cellar portions of our guided tour, so free virtual tours are available online. To offset the decrease in the number of rooms visitors can see, the general admission was reduced from $10 to $7 until we can safely reopen the entire building.
