Providence’s Victorian-era Lippitt House Museum is resuming summer tours by welcoming guests back for semi-private guided tours starting June 4. Following COVID safety best practices, the staff-led tours will be offered by advance reservation and will take guests through the elaborately decorated rooms of Lippitt House exploring how Providence’s history shaped the Rhode Island of today. During the tours, staff will share stories focusing on the people who lived and worked in the house illustrating ideas about industry, immigration, design, and civic engagement, illuminating Providence’s rich cultural heritage.
Carrie Taylor, Museum Director, says “The elaborate décor, spacious rooms, and the large windows of Lippitt House make it an attractive destination for people looking for a safe way for the entire family to explore one of New England’s cultural treasures. The house is in remarkable original condition. During warm weather we open the windows, let in the breezes, and cool the house the way the Lippitt family did when they lived here. Summer is a great time to visit the museum.”
Capacity is limited and advance reservations are required by visiting preserveri.org/visit-lippitt-house-museum by Midnight prior to your requested tour day. Ticket Prices: Adults: $10; Students: $5; Children: 0-12 FREE; EBT Card Holders: FREE.
