Visiting the Museum

Historic House Tours

Noah Webster’s ca. 1750 house is available to visitors by guided tour on a walk-in basis during the museum’s visitor hours (seven days per week from 1-4 p.m. See the information bar to the left). Guide-led tours approximately 45 to 60 minutes, while our new tablet tour allows visitors to take a tour at their own pace. Noah Webster’s house consists of four period-furnished rooms in two floors.

We do our best to accommodate everyone. The second story of the historic house is not handicapped accessible, but we do offer a tablet tour that allows everyone to discover it from anywhere in the building. In addition, the tablet tour offers closed captioning for the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as a Spanish translation. We also offer seating during the house tour and hands-on opportunities for those with low vision or blindness.

Private Tours

Private tours are available at various hours by scheduling in advance. Please see Adult & Family Programs or School & Youth Programs for more information.
