Message from the Conference House 

The Conference House Museum is temporarily closed in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  In order to comply with safety and public health guidelines the museum will not be able to conduct tours at this time.  The expectation is that in the 2021 season we will be able to open to the public safely.  The opening of the new exhibit “George Way at the Conference House” will be rescheduled.  It is our hope that everyone remain safe and that our nation will emerge from this health crisis stronger than ever. We will see you soon!

Updates will be available periodically.



The Conference House School Tours and Private Events/House Rental office is currently closed.

Please call 718-984-6046 and leave a voicemail.
