The first Sunday of each month at Hill-Stead Museum is Discovery Sunday, and we have so many things coming up this year to entice shoppers, walkers and families to be “Inspired by Nature!”

We will be adding Pop-Up Shops through the end of the year. Join us in the orientation gallery from 10am-4pm to see what lovely offerings we have curated for you!
