A Message to Visitors Regarding COVID-19

Hillwood is excited to welcome back the community to enjoy access to the museum and gardens. As of Saturday, June 12, we are no longer requiring advance reservations for timed entry to visit Hillwood. As spring is our busiest season, we still encourage visitors to book their tickets online in advance to ensure a smooth check-in.

The museum shop (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and  Merriweather Café (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) are also open for business.

Please note: In accordance with CDC guidelines, visitors who are fully vaccinated may remove their face masks in outdoor spaces while using appropriate social distancing. We continue to encourage visitors to wear a mask at all times, as many of our garden paths are narrow and social distancing may not always be possible. While many of our staff and visitors are still unvaccinated, we ask all our guests to do their part in keeping everyone at Hillwood safe. While CDC guidelines note that with the efficacy of COVID vaccines, fully vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask indoors, the CDC specifies local mask ordinances still apply. As DC has an indoor mask requirement, Hillwood will enforce mask wearing indoors at all times for all visitors, including those who are vaccinated.
