We are excited to welcome you back to the Herreshoff Marine Museum! We are following all Reopening RI policies and procedural guidelines set out by the state. We have a COVID-19 Control Plan officially on file, and below are a few pointers to help you have a safe and enjoyable visit:

The Basics:

  • Face masks must be worn at all times on HMM's campus
  • Visitor numbers will be limited, but we have a lot of space!
  • You may call ahead if you'd like to see if we're having a busy day: 1(401)253-5000
  • Please maintain proper social distance (at least 6') from all visitors outside your own party at all times
  • We encourage you to buy tickets ahead online (click here!); touch-free transactions will be used whenever possible in the store
  • Expect to have your temperature taken and answer screening questions when you arrive
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available at the reception desk and outside the restrooms

Finding Your Way

  • Download the audio tour on your tablet or mobile device at home so you can jump right in when you arrive NB: this link only works if you click on it from your mobile device or tablet
  • After check-in with our entrance staff, all tours are self-guided
  • Visitors use separate doors for entering and exiting
  • Follow the one-way tour through the museum marked by yellow arrows on the floor
  • All stairwells are now one way
  • For folks who have trouble with stairs, the exit is on the first floor at the south end of the Hall of Boats; all other visitors will follow the signs and arrows to exit via the Aria Gallery
  • Boat exhibits that are usually open for visitors to board are currently closed
