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 recreation.gov or call 1-877-444-6777 to reserve tickets at least one day in advance.
There is a $1.00 reservation fee for each reserved ticket. School groups pay a flat fee of $10.00.
More information about tours of Frederick Douglass's historic house can be found on our Guided Tours page.
