Currently, the house is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9:30-5:00 through October 28, 2018. Guided tours are offered on the half hour starting at 10:00 and the last departs at 3:30. Tours are free of charge and last approximately a half an hour. Should you prefer a self-guided option, please visit during one of our Open Houses from 12:00-1:00 and 4:00-5:00. Self-guided tours are not available, when guided tours are in progress. Reservations are not needed for groups fewer than five as tours are offered first-come-first-served.
The site is seasonally closed from October 29, 2018 through mid-May, 2019. During the off-season, guided tours of the house are available Monday-Friday by appointment only. To ensure staff availability, please make your reservation at least two weeks in advance by calling us at 617-566-7937 or sending us an e-mail. Should you email us, please indicate the desired date of your visit, morning or afternoon preference, number of people in your group, and provide a contact telephone number. During the winter months, and for safety, hazardous road conditions may result in the need to close the site. Should your tour be on a day that the site closes, we will contact you in advance to reschedule. For a listing of current blackout dates, please visit the "Alerts" section on our homepage.
