Petersen House Museum

Open weekends in December annually for Danish Christmas tours

The holidays are a very special time for people who enjoy history and architecture. Located just a mile from the Tempe History Museum at 1414 W. Southern Avenue, the Niels Petersen House becomes a magical holiday house. See what life was like more than 100 years ago. How did people back then celebrate their holidays? The tour is free, thanks to many community volunteers at the Tempe History Museum.

Watch a video about the Petersen House.

The Petersen House Museum will be open this year on select Saturdays and Sundays in December. Call 480 350-5100 for more information. This is the only time of year the Petersen House Museum is open to the public. Take advantage of seeing the beauty of this remarkable home.
