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
  • • 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 on a mobile device or tablet
  • • Visitors use separate doors for entering and exiting
  • • Follow the one-way tour through the museum marked by decals 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
  • • Some boat exhibits that are usually open for visitors to board may currently be closed

This updated map shows the one-way traffic route through the museum.
