Please remember: When you purchase admission, you agree to the following measures:
Face covers are required of all visitors and staff members inside the houses and on the grounds.
Social distancing is mandatory and the flow of visitors through the houses will be supervised in accordance with CDC guidelines.
All tours will be by self-guided audio through the free Newport Mansions app. Audio players will no longer be provided. Please download the audio tour app to your device and remember to bring your own earbuds. Visitors without a smart device will be given a paper tour script that will be used only by them.

NOTE: Regrettably, during the reopening period the houses are not accessible for mobility-challenged guests. Only certified service animals are allowed on the properties. Strollers are not allowed.
IMPORTANT NOTES: While young children are always welcome at the Newport Mansions, we regret that we cannot allow strollers or carriages inside any of the properties. This policy has been adopted because of the significant damage that such vehicles have caused to historic surfaces and furnishings. The Preservation Society cannot be liable for strollers or carriages left unattended on the property during your tour. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

But suitcases, carry-on luggage, duffel bags, or oversized bags of any kind that could cause potential damage to historic surfaces and furnishings are not permitted. Please leave such items in your car prior to entering the property. Please plan your visit with this in mind.
All public health regulations, including but not limited to requirements for shoes while on our property, will be enforced.
