Kids & Families

Hill-Stead has so much to offer!

Hill-Stead welcomes families and children of all ages to explore and learn about art, architecture, agriculture, and history. Self-guided educational experiences bring Hill-Stead to life on our wooded trails, sheep farm, pollinator garden, and the famous Sunken Garden. Families can join our guided tours of the house and see how one young girl’s dream of a family farmhouse has grown into our beautiful museum which showcases family life in the 1900s.

For a complete listing of upcoming events at Hill-Stead, see our Calendar.
