Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a museum? Naper Settlement invites you to step beyond the velvet ropes to enjoy privileged access on guided tours of three historic homes during a new series, "Meet This Old House." The tours will be held after hours from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 1 (Martin Mitchell Mansion), Sunday, June 24 (Murray Building) and Saturday, Sept. 17 (Paw Paw Post Office). Tickets for individual tours are $15 per person, $12 for Settlement-6 members and above. A special series discount is $40 per person and $30 for Settlement-6 members and above for all three tours. There is moderate walking and stair climbing involved. For ages 13+. Reservations are required, call (630) 420-6010. Visit www.napersettlement.org. "Each historic home has its own story to tell, in addition to the history of the families who lived there," Naper Settlement's Curator of Research Bryan Ogg said.
