Gore Place, the Waltham-based historical estate, will offer a tour June 1 exploring the life and work of the servants in the 1806 mansion.
Visitors can imagine what it would be like to live in a house full of servants, said Thom Roach, director of public programs.
Much of the information for the tour came from a guide to domestic living written by Robert Roberts, a butler to the Gores in the 1820s.
"He offers a firsthand view of life here at that time," Roach said.
Led by a guide in period clothing, the tour - titled "What the Butler Said" - will be held on Friday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 7p.m.
Admission is $14 for adults, and $10 children ages 5 to 12. Capacity is limited. For advanced tickets, call 781-894-2798.
Gore Place is located at 52 Gore Street, just off Route 20/Main Street, near the Waltham/Watertown line. For more information, visit the museum's website.
