Discovery Day at Hill-Stead

September 1, 2019, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The first Sunday of each month at Hill-Stead Museum is Discovery Sunday!

This month, be inspired by Nature

Artists have been inspired by nature for thousands of years. Enter the house and see how some of the artworks reflect our natural world, then enjoy the grounds of Hill-stead as you search for materials for your own natural necklace. After you’ve found some interesting natural elements, head over to the education station to create your own work of jewelry art.

Don’t miss out Pop-Up Shop with Ann Lightfoot from 10am-4pm!

Families are invited to explore Hill-Stead and enjoy these Discovery Days activities

  • Self-guided tours run from 1 to 4 pm. Browse the collection at your own pace and engage in the ever-popular scavenger hunt challenge.
  • Enjoy beautiful melodies on the Steinway piano with Sunday pianist Peg Hunt at 2pm.
  • Romp in Hill-Stead’s own natural playground of hiking trails, gardens and walking paths.
  • Purchase a treasure in our Museum Shop, stocked with art supplies, toys, children’s books and much more.
