Museum Is Open — Timed Tickets Required

The Emily Dickinson Museum has completed its most significant restoration project to date of the revered poet’s Homestead. After two years of closure, the Museum is open again. Timed tickets are required. Please buy your tickets in advance.

The Emily Dickinson Museum, comprising two historic houses, is open for guided tours March through December. Begin your visit at the Museum’s Tour Center, located in the Homestead, where you can purchase tickets for our 45-minute guided tour of the historic interiors. From there, visit our Museum shop, grounds, and gardens, all of which are open to the public. Tours, for which a fee is charged, are offered throughout the day and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

To see inside the Homestead, where Emily Dickinson wrote almost all of her poetry, visitors must purchase tickets for a guided tour. Purchasing timed-tickets online ahead of your visit is recommended.

Please note: The Evergreens, home of her brother Austin Dickinson and sister-in-law Susan, is temporarily closed for preservation improvements during the 2022 season.
