Pajama Party Movie Night: Dragons and More!

Embark on a magical adventure as you enjoy short films featuring friendly dragons and other fanciful creatures.

Before the movies begin, relax in the gardens and enjoy a picnic on the grounds. Sandwiches, drinks, and snacks will be available for purchase from Merriweather To Go.

Discover treasures in the mansion and then create your own treasure to take home: a decorative medal to celebrate your bravery, inspired by knights' badges in Hillwood's art collection. 

Bring pajamas, pillows, blankets, and cushions from home to get cozy as you head indoors and settle in to enjoy a selection of award-winning, family-friendly short films, including Dragon Recipes, Zog and more.

Movies recommended for children ages 3-8.

Reservations are encouraged.
