Today brings an opportunity to change up the covid routine.
The Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens (4155 Linnean Avenue, between Upton and Tilden Streets) has reopened for members, and on March 2nd, the museum and its grounds will be welcoming the general public as well.
In both cases, reservations are required at least a day in advance so Hillwood can better space out visits and visitors.
You can become a member at any time. Check out the perks and rates here.
The reopening is a Hillwood tradition of sorts. Each year, the museum usually closes in early to mid-January to allow for a deep cleaning. This time, however, Hillwood was closed beginning December 24th as a covid precaution.
Hillwood’s annual cleaning has begun! Every January, Hillwood closes its doors for a few weeks for a thorough cleaning of the mansion and collections. We hope to see you soon for another year of programs, exhibitions, and year-round beauty in the gardens. pic.twitter.com/yJFVohllMg
