Major Restoration Project

We understand this schedule change may affect previous plans. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you to the Museum as soon as we are able.

The Emily Dickinson Museum is owned by the Trustees of Amherst College. 



A guided tour in the Homestead parlor.

The Emily Dickinson Museum 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 60-minute guided tours. While there, visit our Museum shop, grounds, gardens, and exhibits, 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, and the Evergreens, the home of her brother Austin Dickinson, visitors must purchase tickets for a guided tour.
