The Phillips House & Peabody Essex Museum

This is, perhaps, my first blog-inspired collaboration! The following discount program was conceived after reading my blog post earlier this month about dining at the Peabody Essex Museum...

Dine at the Peabody Essex Museum Atrium Cafe or Garden Restaurant (use the discount coupons below!) and then visit the The Phillips House on Chestnut Street. If you show your meal receipt, you will save $1.00 off your admission to The Phillips House.

The Phillips House is
located on picturesque Chestnut Street in Salem. A gorgeous Federal-style mansion, it is the only home on Chestnut Street that is open to the public. It contains a family collection that spans five generations.

At the Phillips House, you will see artifacts from near and far, hear the stories of the Phillips family, and experience over two hundred years of history in the New England tradition.

Now is a great time to visit the Peabody Essex Museum, too, as less than a month remains for you to experience this summer's highly-acclaimed exhibition, Wedded Bliss, the Marriage of Art and Ceremony, which is on view through Sunday, September 14 at the Museum.

Wedded Bliss explores weddings as the inspiration for the creation of art through a connective and comparative lens. 130 paintings, sculptures, photographs, decorative objects and multimedia from around the world, highlight the complex beliefs and emotions surrounding the matrimonial experience. From the 18th century to the present, these works reveal the diversity of creative response to weddings, as well as changing attitudes and customs over time.
