Mid-May through October group tours are most easily scheduled Tuesdays and Wednesdays when we are closed for regular tours. If you need to visit on a day other than Tuesday or Wednesday, the tour will be scheduled around regular tours and may occur earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon.
November through mid May tours are offered but may be impacted by inclement weather.
Visits to Arrowhead average between 60-90 minutes depending on the size of the group.
Due to room sizes in the house, your group may be split into two or more groups. Group Tour reservations are required; please contact us at least 30 days in advance of your visit; mail melville@berkshirehistory.org or call 413-442-1793. A deposit of 15% is required for confirmation. Payment of the balance is due upon arrival.

The grounds and nature trail are open year round during daylight hours for walking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. Trails are open at your own risk. If you bring your dog, please clean up after them. Please be aware that this is both an historic site and a natural habit, and do your absolute best not to disturb anything. No motorized vehicles allowed off the driveway or parking lot. No metal detectors. 

The offices of the Berkshire County Historical Society are usually open on weekdays, though we encourage you to call ahead.  Offices are closed state and federal holidays. The Margaret H. Hall Library and Archives are are generally open year-round by appointment with the curator. For more information, contact the curator here.

The Berkshire County Historical Society strives to make Arrowhead as accessible as possible. In 2015, new pathways were installed. There now is level access from the parking area to the visitors center in the big red barn, and to the main house.  The first floor of the house is accessible to wheelchairs, and photos of the second floor are available.
