Projected Re-Opening on August 1, 2021
Orchard House, the New England home where Louisa May Alcott wrote and set Little Women, has become an inspirational pilgrimage site to millions of visitors from around the world.
For the strong-hearted, independent, and spirited Alcott family, people always mattered more than things. For them, it was second nature to give from the heart to anyone in need.
We are normally open seven days a week year-round. Since March, however, we have been closed, and must work harder than ever to ensure that this precious national treasure will not be lost. We hope that you can help us -- every gift counts!
"It really is a living house.
I've never seen a museum like this, that has so much character and life."
