Safety Measures

In order to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, we have implemented the following safety measures:

  • When possible, we will maintain 6 feet of social distancing. Floor markings and signs will assist guests with this effort.
  • All guests should remain at least six feet apart from people outside of their party during their visit.
  • We have installed sneeze guards at our Visitor Center and hand-sanitizing stations in the Historic Village area, Bowman’s Hill Tower, and the Thompson-Neely House.
  • The capacity of our Visitor Center has been reduced to 25 people inside the building, and 10 people inside the exhibit gallery.
  • Staff will regularly clean high-touch areas throughout the day.
  • Guided tours have been modified so that more time is spent outside during the tour. Tour capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing.

Face Coverings

Per CDC guidelines, all people over the age of 2 are required to wear a mask when indoors, and outdoors during guided tours. If guests are maintaining social distancing while enjoying passive recreation on park grounds, face coverings are not required.

What’s Open?

  • Take a guided tour through the Historic Village and see where General Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware River.
  • View the historically-accurate plants growing in our Hibbs House Kitchen Garden.
  • Explore our Visitor Center exhibit, “A Glorious Enterprise.” The Visitor Center is open from 10 AM to 5 PM, seven days a week.
  • Climb Bowman’s Hill Tower and enjoy a stunning 14-mile view of the Bucks County countryside.
  • Tour the Thompson-Neely Farmstead and Grist Mill (see restrictions below).
  • Say hello to the heritage breed sheep and goats at the Thompson-Neely Farmstead.
  • Bathrooms are open inside the Visitor Center; in the field across the street and diagonal from the Visitor Center; and at the Thompson-Neely House.

What’s Closed?

Guided tours typically begin with a brief introductory film that sets the stage for a guided tour of the Historic Village. Because the auditorium in the Visitor Center will remain closed, we recommend watching the introductory film on YouTube before visiting Washington Crossing Historic Park for a tour.

The second floors of the Thompson-Neely House and the Thompson-Neely Grist Mill will remain closed at this time.

All Friends of Washington Crossing Park events are canceled through July 31.

Organized Events

During the green phase limited events and site rentals are permitted and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please contact the visitor center at 215-493-4076 or email info@washingtoncrossingpark.org for more information. Please note that all organized events required a rental agreement.
