About events this season: We aim for a safe & healthy environment as we bring programming indoors for this winter.

As we continue to emerge from the pandemic, it is a time for caution with some uncertainty. We’ve adjusted our winter indoor events to keep our gatherings smaller.  Some activities are in a virtual format for days when it is harder for guests to venture out.

House tours are available for up to five people at a time. We require proof of vaccination for visitors 12 and up at indoor programs and a facemask when visiting.

Check back for a new line-up of programs in the spring. Our art exhibitions return in June.
