A Note on Tea Events

Our biggest and most popular way to raise funds has always been our monthly themed teas. Owning to the need for additional funds for preservation and the rising costs of programming events and entertainment, we are changing our non-member tea price to $45.00 per person.

We regret that due to the size and nature of our facility, we are unable to provide accommodations for dietary needs or restrictions. All menus are set for each event and cannot be changed. Should you wish to attend one of our teas and bring your own food from home while partaking in our tea beverage service and event atmosphere, we can offer a discounted price of $15 for such occasions. Please make this request at the time you make your reservations.

Our teas typically include scones with jam or curd, three sweet items, three savory items, and our signature hot tea- Miss Eloise’s afternoon tea, which is a black tea with Jasmine. We do not offer additional tea options as we are not a restaurant or tea house and these special tea programs are designed with set menus. You are welcome to bring tea bags from home if you require decaffeinated options; we are happy to provide you with hot water, sugar, milk, and lemon as needed.

Reservations are required for all events. To make a reservation call the museum at 757-623-9814, and please leave a voicemail if we do not answer.  You can also email hhvmwhitney@gmail.com or click the button below.
