Tours

Trinity Church Boston is designated as “one of the ten most important buildings in America” by the American Institute of Architects. More than 70,000 visitors tour this National Historic Landmark building each year. Come see why!

 

Guided & Self-Guided Tours

One-hour tours of the church interior are offered Tuesday through Sunday by expert volunteers. Tickets for the tours may be purchased at our Welcome Center inside the entrance from Copley Square. As the tour schedule may vary, please check the current tour calendar or call 617-536-0944 x206 in advance of your visit.

Note: A free guided tour is offered every regular Sunday. It meets at the Eagle Lectern (in the front of the right front pew) immediately following the last worship service of the morning. In winter months, it meets immediately following the 11:15 a.m. worship service at 12:15 p.m.; in summer, it meets immediately following the 10 a.m. worship service at 11 a.m. For holiday Sundays, please be sure to check the current tour calendar.

If you prefer, you may follow a self-guided tour during open hours. You will be provided with an explanatory brochure to help you map out your itinerary.

 

Cost of Guided and Self-Guided Tours: $7 per person. Children under 16 are free with an accompanying adult. Students, seniors, veterans, and service members with a valid ID receive a discounted rate of $5 per person.

It pains us to have to charge for touring. Trinity Church does not receive any direct operating support from sources other than parishioner pledges. It costs nearly $35,000 per week to operate the church building, not including the additional funds needed for restoration projects.

We are called to preserve and restore a building that is more than 140 years old and to keep its doors open to increasing numbers of visitors from around the world. To support that work, and to provide for our visitors’ security, we must rely on income from sightseeing.

 

Open For Prayer

If you enter the church to pray, your donation is most welcome, but not required.

 

A Holy Place

We ask that all who visit help preserve the sanctity of the church; in keeping with this, we request that men please remove hats, and that food and drink are not consumed in the church. Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended.
