What We Offer

Group Tours

Private group tours are available to any group with over 10 attendees. Tours will be led by our trained docent and include a tour of Ladd-Gilman house (60 minutes) and Folsom Tavern (20 minutes). We recommend that you allow a minimum of 90 minutes for your guided tour to provide ample time for guests to gather and travel between both buildings. Group tours may be arranged anytime during our open hours, Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. Please note that group tours are only offered April – November.

Make the most of your visit to Exeter by enjoying a meal in Folsom Tavern! Meals are scheduled for an additional hour of time and may be scheduled before or after your guided tour.

  • Tavern Lunch– Lunch will be arranged by the Museum and set up in the Folsom Tavern for your convenience. Typical bagged lunch includes sandwich, chips, cookie and a drink. We work with local, professional caterers to arrange your lunch.
  • Tavern Light Breakfast – Come and eat where George Washington had breakfast! A light breakfast will be arranged by the Museum, set up in the Folsom Tavern for your convenience.  Coffee, tea, juice, and an assortment of breakfast pastries will be provided from local Exeter shops.

After Hours Group Tours

Offered either 8-10 am or 4-6 pm, this tour will provide your group with exclusive access to the Museum before or after the building is open to the general public.  These tours will focus on the Ladd-Gilman House and will last around 60 minutes – perfect for a quick group outing or part of a corporate activity!
