NOTE: The Elms is now closed for the winter, leaving The Breakers as our only property open for tours. But we expect the longer, brighter days of spring to bring renewal – and reopening, at least for The Elms and Green Animals Topiary Garden. As for the other houses, we’ll have to see what’s happening with COVID-19, how quickly the vaccines are disseminated, and whether tourism and travel will bounce back as a result. We can’t wait to get back to normal.
Meanwhile, The Breakers hours will change starting Monday, January 11: opening at 10 a.m., last admission at 4 p.m., and house and grounds close at 5 p.m.
NOTE: Social distancing is just one of many new measures we have put into place while carefully planning for our reopening. Face covers are now mandatory for guests and staff, and all tour tickets – issued for a specific date and 30-minute window to help manage the flow of visitors in accordance with CDC guidelines – must be reserved online.
Additionally, tours will be self-guided using our free audio app. You can learn about downloading the Newport Mansions app to your smart device by Clicking here.
And don’t forget to bring your earphones. For more information about our new requirements, or to purchase tickets, visit the Website.
