Emily Dickinson Museum reopens Saturday, March 4
The Emily Dickinson Museum is closed for January and February, and reopens for 2017 on Saturday, March 4. The Museum will be open 11 am to 4 pm Saturdays and Sundays, and tours throughout March will focus on the Homestead, where Emily Dickinson was born and wrote nearly all of her poetry. The Museum will be open only on weekends due to restoration work at the Homestead and the installation of a fire suppression system at The Evergreens. Find out more about visiting here.
