Tickets for Greenhouse Tours are distributed on a first come, first served basis.

While many public gardens have tropical and orchid displays, Hillwood is one of the few in the Mid-Atlantic region to have a working greenhouse where visitors can tour.

Marjorie Merriweather Post had the Greenhouse constructed to house her extensive collection of exotic orchids, as well as cut flowers grown for floral arrangements throughout the mansion. Jason Gedeik, Head of Greenhouse Design and Operations, leads a short tour of the working greenhouse, highlighting its history, Mrs. Post’s infatuation with orchids, and the exotic blooms and fragrances on display now.

Limited to 10 per tour. Tickets are distributed at the Visitor Center upon opening each day. Suggested Donation Applies. Meet in the Greenhouse Entry.
