As a museum, Hay House shares with its visitors the philosophy of historic preservation and introduces them to preservation methods and technology. Hay House has become a center for educational, civic and cultural events.
Guided tours teach visitors about the national significance of the architecture, its technological advances and its artistic sophistication. Guests also hear a rich social history: the Johnstons, Feltons and Hays were all historically significant families, adapting the house to their own lifestyles. Each year, approximately 15,000-20,000 visitors enjoy the house's decorative arts collection, stained-glass windows and handsome cabinetry.
Open Mondays-Saturdays 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Sundays 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Tours are on the hour with the last tour at 3 p.m.
We also offer Behind the Scenes Tours seasonally.
Closed: New Year's Day, Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
