Visiting Properties

All Trustees properties are now open to the public. deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, Castle Hill in Ipswich, Fruitlands Museum in Harvard, and World’s End in Hingham, are open with a required advance online pass to limit overcrowding and keep visitors and staff safe. Passes for all visitors, including Members, must be reserved online ahead of time for these properties. Visitors without these passes will not be allowed to enter.

In addition, visitors are encouraged to reserve advance online passes for Stevens-Coolidge in North Andover, and may also be able to purchase an admission pass on-site if capacity allows.

Protocols for Outdoor Spaces

Per the Governor’s most recent order, face masks are no longer required in outdoor spaces for those who are vaccinated.

Public bathrooms have been reopened, if they were previously closed, and we will follow all cleaning and other safety guidelines established by the CDC.

Crane Beach in Ipswich is also open with advance online parking passes, which at this time are required. Permit holders can access Crane Beach for free with their permit and an advance online pass. Members can reserve discounted advance passes according to the pass release schedule.

Protocols for Indoor Spaces

While the state is lifting face mask requirements, The Trustees has made the decision to require them for the indoor experiences we offer. In light of rapidly changing guidance from the state and CDC, we believe this is the most effective way to provide the safest possible environment for our staff and guests at this time.  

Please check back for regularly for new Covid-related announcements.

FAQs for Advance Online Passes

Programs and Events

During this time of COVID, The Trustees has been conservative with our engagement efforts because ensuring the safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority. Following the Governor’s most recent orders, we are no longer requiring participants to wear face masks outdoors, if vaccinated, and have resumed most of our public programs and events.

We will limit large events, such as picnic concerts, festivals, and Biergartens, to 2,000 people, and we’ll ensure that our guests can spread out in a safe way. Face masks will not be required for participants who are vaccinated.

Advance online ticket sales will continue for programs and events.

Farm Stores and CSA Shares

All Trustees farms are now open to visitors. Farm stores will be open to the public on June 8th. Learn more about our farm stores here.

For CSA shareholders, The Trustees will be offering pre-packaged boxed shares and curbside pickup this season. Learn more about our CSAs.

We ask that visitors and CSA shareholders wear face masks when entering farm stores, indoor CSA pickup areas, and other indoor spaces on our farms.

Inns and Campgrounds

We no longer require vaccinated guests to wear face masks indoors at our inns and campgrounds. For non-vaccinated individuals, we advise they wear face masks indoors when they cannot socially distance themselves. We trust our guests will do what is right for the health and wellbeing of other guests and our staff. 

We support anyone’s decision to continue wearing a face mask for as long as they choose, regardless of vaccination status.
