Mask Policy

Masks fully covering the mouth and nose are to be worn by all visitors and staff in public spaces at the New Hampshire Historical Society. While recent progress with vaccinations is very encouraging, no one can tell who is and who isn’t vaccinated. Our priority is to have a policy that promotes the health and safety of everyone— visitors and staff—at the Society. The Society welcomes families with young children, and we know that only a small percentage of children under 18 have been vaccinated. We also welcome all adults, including those who may not be able to be vaccinated due to a compromised immune system. In order to accommodate all individuals, young or older, we will continue to adhere to our existing mask policy until further notice.


Take Interstate 93 to Exit 14. Northbound—turn left at the light at the end of the exit ramp; Southbound—turn right at the light at the end of the exit ramp. Move into the left lane in order to take a left onto North Main Street. Take the next right onto Park Street (a one-way street that goes up the right side of the State House). At the stop sign, continue straight; the New Hampshire Historical Society is the granite building on the right. Metered parking is available on surrounding streets and in downtown Concord's public parking garages. 


The New Hampshire Historical Society’s building, including the rotunda, exhibition gallery, auditorium, reading room, and restrooms are wheelchair accessible. Accessible parking is located behind the building in the Society’s lot (entrance off North State Street), and the building’s rear entrance is wheelchair accessible via a ramp from the parking lot.
