There's something new in every season

Mansion Tours

Marjorie Post purchased Hillwood with the intent to leave it as a museum that would inspire and educate the public. Guided mansion tours led by our trained volunteer docents treat visitors to additional information and viewpoints about Post, her rich collections, and how they are experienced today very much as they were in Post’s time.

Pop-Up Mansion Tours
Pop-up mansion tours are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to docent availability. Due to limited docent availability because of COVID, tours are not guaranteed. When offered, tours will be scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with an additional tour at 3:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Each tour is approximately one hour long. Please inquire at the visitor center regarding tour availability the day of your visit.

Mansion tours are included in the suggested donation and can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis in the visitor center upon opening each day.

Face masks are required in all indoor spaces. 
Please note: In accordance with CDC guidelines, visitors 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 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. Hillwood will enforce mask wearing indoors at all times for all visitors.
