Welcome Back to Buckman!
Starting Saturday March 6, Buckman Tavern in Lexington will reopen for hybrid indoor/outdoor tours! During the tour, participants will gather outside with a Lexington Historical Society guide to learn the history of Buckman Tavern and the role it played in the Battle of Lexington. After this brief chat, visitors will be guided through the historic 1710 tavern to view the period rooms. Visitors will have time to view artifacts and ask questions of LHS guides during this abbreviated tour of the interior of Buckman Tavern. Visitors can also choose to visit the tavern’s upstairs exhibit, Something Must Be Done: Bold Women of Lexington, which has been closed to visitors since March 2020.
What to Expect: During the tour, all social distancing practices and mandated Massachusetts State Regulations and Requirements will be observed. Please remember to stay the length of a British Grenadier (6 feet) away from other visitors and to always wear your mask so we can keep our visitors and staff as safe as we can. All tour tickets will be timed and available for pre-purchase online or when visitors arrive, if space allows. Adult admission is $10, family group is $30, and members are always free! Visitors who feel ill or decline to follow the health guidelines are not permitted to attend the tour. A refund will be issued.
