Can I park at the museum? Is there on-street parking?

There is on-street parking near the Pierce House.

Are there restrooms at Pierce House?

Yes, there is a restroom in the house.

Is the museum handicapped accessible?

A tour of any Historic New England property requires a considerable amount of standing and some walking.  Pierce 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. Service animals are always welcome. We encourage visitors with concerns to call ahead. We are happy to work with you to make your visit an enjoyable one.

Can I take photographs in 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.   

Do we need to take a tour or can we just look around?

All visitors to the house receive a guided tour.
