Can I park at the museum? Is there on street parking?
There is plenty of two-hour, unmetered parking on the street. There is also a municipal lot behind the house.
Do we need to take a tour or can we just look around?
All visitors to the house receive a guided tour.
Can I take photographs at the museum?
Interior and exterior photography for personal use is allowed at Historic New England properties. For the safety and comfort of our visitors and the protection of our collections and house museums, we ask that you be aware of your surroundings and stay with your guide. Video, camera bags, tripods and selfie-sticks are not permitted. Professional/commercial photographers and members of the media should visit the press room for more information.
How can I book a group tour? What is the cost?
The cost for a group tour of ten or more is $1 off the regular admission price. Call 603-436-3205 or e-mail the Gilman Garrison House.
Is the museum handicapped accessible?
A tour of any Historic New England property requires a considerable amount of standing and some walking. Giman Garrison House has not been equipped with handicapped accessible ramps, elevators, or chair lifts. Folding chairs can be provided for visitors who would like to use them during a tour. Visitors with limited mobility may be able to enjoy a first floor tour of the house. Service animals are welcome. We encourage visitors with concerns to call ahead. We are happy to work with you to make your visit an enjoyable one.
