Mask Policy

 

For the 2022 tour season, masks are required for all visitors over the age of 2 while inside the Museum. Many people remain vulnerable to COVID-19 and wearing masks helps keep the Museum accessible for everyone.

Accessibility

Lippitt House Museum’s main floor is accessible via an electronic lift. Lift operation and Museum entrance requires staff assistance. Please call the Museum at (401) 453-0688 in advance for parking/drop-off instructions.
