Admission: Nathaniel Russell House Museum


The Nathaniel Russell House (c. 1808), located at 51 Meeting Street, is open from 10 am until 5:00pm seven days a week.

You may visit anytime within those hours as we do not have reserved starting times. However, we do ask that you plan to arrive and start your tour before 4:15 pm to allow enough time before the museum closes at 5 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to ongoing maintenance, we cannot guarantee use of the house elevator. If you have accessibility questions, please contact the House Manager at 843-724-8482.

For groups of 12 or more, please call the house manager to reserve a tour. Discounts apply.

Questions? Call: (843) 724-8481.
