We welcome you to visit and experience the Percy Grainger Home and Studio!
Third Sunday House Tours
Free tours are available with select events such as our 'Third Sundays' and our annual Spring Open House.
Third Sundays tours are part education, part interpretation, and a fun, informative alternative to the traditional historic house tour. While a room-by-room tour is included, the focus is on one idea, with the collection providing the backdrop to illustrate that idea.
The next Third Sunday, November 19 at 2 pm (EST), highlights our new exhibit: Tone Rhythm Pitch: Exploring Percy Grainger’s Free Music. While there is no charge, space considerations require reservations.
Tone Rhythm Pitch: Exploring Percy Grainger’s Free Music can also be viewed during “Walk-in-Wednesdays”. Reservations are required. With “Walk-in-Wednesdays”, visitors are invited to explore the exhibition between 12 and 3 pm on the first and 4th Wednesday each month. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and reservations. No fee is charged to view the exhibit.
Visit our Events page for further dates and details.
Individual/Small Group House Tours
Bookable house tours are currently available at 12 noon, or 1pm each Wednesday. The fee is $20 for one visitor, $30 for two, and $40 for three. Email us for larger groups. House tours are free with membership. Advance reservations required: click here to schedule your tour.
The Grainger Society held a volunteer training in January and small group tours, normally offered three days per week, are undergoing a restructuring. Please check back for enhanced times and availability.
Please note that the house is not wheelchair accessible and visitors will need to climb several flights of stairs. Tours are generally 45–60 minutes long.
The house is located adjacent to the heart of downtown White Plains. We encourage you to walk down Mamaroneck Avenue and visit the many restaurants and shops. The train station is less than 1 mile away (a short walk or taxi drive). A parking garage is located across the street.

The Percy Grainger Home and Studio has evolved over the years since Percy, Rose, and eventually Ella, added their own personal touches to the rooms. Below are some examples of how rooms have looked over the years.
