Cutting garden in fall


There's something new in every season

Opening Hours and Tickets

Hillwood is excited to welcome back safely the community to enjoy access to the museum and gardens. Advance reservations are not required, though we still encourage visitors to book their tickets online in advance to ensure a smooth check-in. Please review our full list of hints and tips for help planning your visit. 

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 D.C. has an indoor mask recommendation, Hillwood will enforce mask wearing indoors at all times for all visitors, including those who are vaccinated. 


Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Closed on Mondays, most national holidays, and several weeks at the end of January
