$5 suggested donation
The home is open for tours on the third Sunday of each month from May to October, from noon to 4:00 p.m. Suggested donation of $5 includes entry to John Joseph Henry House and Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum.

The Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum, which opened to the public in 2006, contains a substantial collection of original, hand-crafted Pennsylvania longrifles and items related to the making of longrifles from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Pennsylvania Longrifle Museum features more than 100 historic arms on either permanent display or in rotating, topical exhibits.

Displays feature Henry firearms dating from the American Fur Trade, the War of 1812, the Civil War, the American West, and the early twentieth century. Most of the firearms were made by the Henrys of Boulton, but the collection also contains arms made by Abraham Henry (1768-1807), who apprenticed in Nazareth under his brother William Henry II (1757-1821) but returned to Lancaster to practice his trade. The Boulton area itself produced guns for more than 100 years.
