Visiting the Museum

Historic House Tours

Noah Webster’s 300+ year old birthplace is available to visitors on a walk-in basis Monday-Saturday from 1-4 p.m. Guests may self-guide through the house using our tablet tour. Docent-guided tours are available upon request prior to your visit and last approximately 45 to 60 minutes. Tablet tours allow 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 a visitor may use a tablet to learn about the second floor. In addition, the tablet tour offers closed captioning for the deaf and hard of hearing, as well as a Spanish translation. Seating during the tour is available upon request. We also offer hands-on opportunities for those with low vision or blindness. Please let our Visitor Services Associate know if you need special accommodations.
