A Message to Visitors Regarding COVID-19

Hillwood is excited to welcome back the community to enjoy access to the museum and gardens. Advanced reservations are required and are now available.  

The museum shop (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and  Merriweather Café are also open for business.

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.  

Please note: All visitors over the age of two, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine, are required to wear masks in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
