Music at the Museum
Enjoy a day of music at the Hammond Castle Museum!
This summer, visitors will have the unique opportunity to not only visit the castle, but to enjoy a Sunday afternoon filled with music. In a nod to John Hammond’s love of music, we have invited three local performance groups to spend the afternoon filling the halls and grounds with melodies for visitors to enjoy during their self-guided castle tours.
Hammond Castle Museum has the pleasure of bringing these amazing three groups to our grounds: Myschyffe Managed, The Penniless Jacks, and the Ladies of Integrity, Aristocracy, Repute, and Society
Tickets are now available $15 per person for more information and to buy tickets click here
Mr. Hammond loved the evening, and may have done some of his most creative work when the rest of the castle was asleep. His friend, Alexander Graham Bell, first suggested to him that he work at night and sleep during the day, a regime Hammond adopted.
In recognition of this, our Thursday night “candlelit tours” are offered during the months of July and August, during which guides will show you the rooms that Hammond frequented, and entertain you with stories about how a very shy Irene Hammond adapted to her role as wife and hostess within this residence by the sea. Guided tours are the only way to see the castle on Thursday evenings, and are offered at 6:00, 7:00 and 8:00 PM, with no additional charge beyond basic admission. A popular choice for visitors of all ages.
There is little doubt that Hammond’s favorite time of year was October. He had surrounding himself with objects from antiquity, and felt a connection with the spirits of the original owners or artisans who created these objects. House guests that were invited to visit during October were never quite sure what Hammond had in store for them, especially after the sun set, and the candles were lit.
Details for Halloween 2019 will be announced late Summer 2019.
