We are delighted to welcome visitors back to the Birthplace Museum site! We are open for tours Wed.-Fri.: 1PM-4PM and Sat. & Sun.: 11AM-4PM. All events will continue to be online. You do not need a reservation to visit us in person. Please visit us between the hours listed above.

Note from WWBA

Though we are now open for site Tours, we are suffering the effects of a March – August closing with a severe loss of tourist and event revenue. Your online contributions have never been more vital to sustaining our efforts. We can only keep our weekly online programs and community engagement going with the support of individuals like you. Contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated! To donate please click the button below. Thank you!
