We love visitors, but the office is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to Massachusetts declaring that nonessential businesses should close, the FSF office is temporarily closed and cannot accept any public visitors. We will continue monitoring the situation and update this page accordingly.

When the office resumes being open to visitors: our office hours are from 10am until 6pm, but we request that visitors come between 11am and 4pm — so if you come outside of those hours, nobody is likely to be around to show you the office. You also won't get to meet most of the staff, as they'll be out of the office.

Generally, we eat lunch every day around 1pm. If you'd like to come and have lunch with us, please do.

There's no need to let us know you're coming, but it can't hurt... an email to is the best way to let us know in advance.

The FSF is a charity with a worldwide mission to advance software freedom — learn about our history and work. is powered by:
