Permits & Reservations


For more information about photography/film or special use permits, please call the permit office at 202-690-5152.



Reservations are required for group tours (11-60 people). Call 1-877-559-6777 at least one week in advance of your group's visit to make a reservation.

If you are visiting on your own or with a group of fewer than ten people, reservations are not required, but they are strongly encouraged. Space on each tour is limited; a reservation will guarantee you get on the tour. Visit or call 1-877-444-6777 to reserve tickets at least one day in advance.

There is a $1.50 fee for each reserved ticket. School groups pay a flat fee of $5.00.

More information about tours of Frederick Douglass's historic house can be found on our Guided Tours page.
