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 for groups of 10 or more and must be reserved prior to your visit (see below). 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.

Group Admission Rates

Groups of 10 or more are by reservation only ($15 per person).
