Whether you are a first-time visitor or long-time member, there is always something new to discover at this hidden attraction in Washington, D.C.
Join us for an on-site self-guided tour of Hillwood's magnificent gardens. There will also be an opportunity for self-guided tours of the Mansion and the Special Exhibits:
Roaring Twenties Exhibit. Hillwood founder Marjorie Merriweather Post was an iconic tastemaker during the era known as the Roaring Twenties. One hundred years later, Hillwood celebrates Post’s influence on the period with a special exhibition focused on her impeccable attire, impressive art collection, and sumptuous design.
RIch Soil, an outdoor sculpture exhibition which transforms the grounds of Hillwood for the second ever. Contemporary American artist Kristine Mays's life-size, three-dimensional dancing wire sculptures will emerge throughout the gardens.
The mansion will also be available for self-guided touring.
