Hillwood Remains Open

At this time, Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens remains open to visitors, offering a safe setting on our twenty-five acres to find inspiration and rejuvenation. We take seriously the safety of all staff and guests, enforcing advance reservations, limited capacity, contactless check in, masks, and social distancing everywhere on the estate. We will continue carefully to monitor the situation while we adhere to all mandated restrictions and suggestions from the CDC and the District of Columbia.
