The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and has a plan for reopening.
It is clear that the historic house museum and broader arts and culture community, with its reliance on leisure travel and moving people through indoor spaces, will experience the impacts of the pandemic for a longer stretch of time than other businesses and organizations. We anticipate our audience – cultural tourists, field trips, and group tours – will return in sustainable numbers in 2021.
The Stowe Center will reopen April 8, 2021 on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Please check our calendar for upcoming programs, and the website as of March 20th for online ticket reservations.
We are embracing this unusual moment to work on outdoor programming, enhancing our historic park-like setting and encouraging community use while ensuring that guests can maintain safe distances; to develop and deliver digital content; develop richer experiences and other infrastructure that will roll out when we reopen fully; and create blueprints for the future.
