COVID-19 Safety Protocol at Ventfort Hall

  • Guests must practice social distancing by keeping distance between yourselves and others (to the best of your ability) who are not in your party. Please observe the limited room capacity in each space and follow directional arrows when applicable.
  • Sanitize your hands when you enter the house and throughout your visit. Hand sanitizing stations are provided throughout the house.
  • Masks are required of all visitors and museum personnel older than the age of 2, regardless of their vaccination status, per the Tri-town Board of Health. The CDC specifically advises those who have not been vaccinated to continue to wear a face mask in indoor public settings.
  • Travelers from out of state are required to be in compliance with the current Massachusetts travel guidance: gov/info-details/covid-19-travel-order

All tours are strictly self-guided to allow for social distancing. Docents are available during your visit to answer any questions you may have or discuss the history of the house. Informational material is provided throughout the house as well as an audio tour you can follow on your smartphone — please bring headphones if possible.

There will be no pre-registration and visitation will be by walk-in only. Entry times are every hour with the first admission at 10 am and the last admission at 3pm.

If you are not feeling well or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have been exposed to anyone with the virus within the last 14 days, or have been advised to self-quarantine within the last 10 days, please delay your visit to a later time and contact us to discuss rescheduling options if applicable.

There is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Ventfort Hall cannot be held responsible for any potential exposure or contraction of the COVID-19 virus due to visiting the museum.

Please be in touch if you have any other questions regarding your plans to visit by emailing info@gildedage.org at any time or calling 413-637-3206 during business hours.
