The Ayer Mansion

Touring and Renting the Ayer Mansion

Scheduled Public Tours

Tours of the Ayer Mansion are offered at least one Saturday and two Wednesdays a month (with the exception of August, when the house is closed to the public) and are usually posted two months in advance. Tours last approximately one and a quarter hour. Reservations are required for all public tours as space is limited. If you have reserved a spot, but cannot attend, please let us know so that we can plan accordingly.

To make a reservation, email ayermansion@gmail.com or call 617-536-2586. Donations for tours are $15 for adults, $10 for students (21 and under) and senior citizens (65 or older). To pay online, click here or pay in cash or by check at the time of the tour. 

For weather and other cancellations, please check this page the morning of your tour.

Requesting a Private Tour

To request a private tour of the house, or to find out about public tours at a later date than those posted above, please contact us at ayermansion@gmail.com or call 617-536-2586. The cost for private tours is $35 per person ($15 per person for non-profit groups). Please note, however, that private tours require extra coordination and special accommodations. To cover the costs of these additional efforts, a non-refundable, minimum on-line donation of $150 is required at the time of booking, with any balance due the day of the tour.  Thank you for your understanding.

Renting the Ayer Mansion for Your Event

The front parlor and front hall of the Ayer Mansion are available for rental under limited circumstances.  Please note, however, that due to size and other restrictions, we regret that wedding events of any type are not possible. 

For more information about a possible rental, please call 617-536-2586 or email us at ayermansion@gmail.com.
