A Message to Visitors Regarding COVID-19

Hillwood is excited to welcome back our members to enjoy exclusive access to the museum and gardens. Reservations are now open

On Tuesday, March 2, we will safely expand our capacity and welcome the broader community.   

Please note: While the museum shop will be open (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.), Merriweather Café will remain closed, and there will be no food or beverage service, until March.

To minimize physical contact and practice social distancing, reservations must be made in advance. No reservations will be taken on site. Reservations are by timed-entry and are limited in order to manage safe capacity. Members are required to make their reservations in advance. Day-of reservations are not available. To ease the process, we strongly encourage you to make your reservation online, as staffing for phone reservations is limited.
