Glimpse behind the scenes at Bonnet House

February 6, 2014 by  

Ft. Lauderdale’s popular Bonnet House Museum and Gardens is opening its doors for a private living quarter’s tour.

Visitors will have an opportunity to take a look at areas normally not open to the public. The VIP tour experience will allow visitors into Evelyn and Frederic Bartlett’s private quarters. The tours are led by experienced guides at Bonnet House.

Standard tours are offered monthly on the second Wednesday; however, they do not include viewing the private living quarters. This special tour will take place on February 12 at 2:00 p.m. at the facility located at 900 N. Brich Road. The tour will be conducted in groups of 15, allowing for interaction and discussion.

Frederic Clay Bartlette, born in Chicago, built Bonnet House in 1920 on land that was given to him and his wife by her father. Sitting on 35 acres, the estate now serves as a museum with historic and environmental preservation on display for visitors.

Oftentimes museums work with print companies for brochure printing, which serve as a tool for telling a story about a site such as this. Printed in full color, a brochure gets its message across by including images and text. They can be distributed at the venue, handed out at various points, or directly mailed.

Visit the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens for more details and to purchase tickets for the upcoming VIP Tours. For questions, call 954-563-5393.
