School Group Visits

Reimagine what it means to be a part of the Revolutionary past.

We welcome your school or group visit to the Old State House and Old South Meeting House!

Please call or email with any questions: or 617-720-1713 x 300.

All groups must make reservations in advance.

Reservation requests should be made at least three weeks in advance. Groups of ten or more that arrive at the door without advance reservations may be turned away if the museums are too crowded to accommodate them. If they can be admitted, they must pay full admission fees rather than the reduced group rate.

Notification of cancellation must occur at least 24 hours in advance.
Groups larger than 30 students cannot be admitted to the Old State House at one time.

Large groups must be divided into groups of 25-30 students and enter the museum at least 30 minutes apart. Old South Meeting House can easily accommodate groups up to 75 people.

School groups must have at least one adult chaperone for every ten students.

Groups that arrive without enough chaperones will not be admitted to either museum. Chaperones must remain with students at all times and actively supervise the visit. One adult for every ten students will be included in the price. There will be a fee for additional adults.

The museums are not able to accommodate groups on the following days:
  • Memorial Day
  • July 4
  • Free Fun Friday (TBA)
  • Labor Day
  • The annual reenactment of the Boston Massacre (first Saturday in March)

Please complete the Group Reservation Request Form to request a group booking. Your booking will not be complete until you receive a confirmation email from the Revolutionary Spaces education department. Groups that arrive without a confirmed reservation may not be admitted.
