Hill-Stead Museum and Private Home, CT - Thursday, May 16

Hill-Stead Museum/Private Home, Farmington, CT

Thursday, May 16

Masterpieces by Degas and Monet with original home furnishings make the Hill-stead collection one of the most significant in the US today. During our docent-guided tour, we will view additional works-by Manet, Whistler, and Cassatt, as well as Japanese woodblock prints and decorative arts. The Hill-stead Museum, one of the nation’s few remaining representations of early 20th century Country Place Estates, is noted for its 1901 hilltop Colonial Revival house set on over 150 acres.

This is a unique experience-viewing world-class art in a gracious home setting.

After our tour, there will be time to stroll through the beautiful gardens on your own.

Before the Museum visit, enjoy lunch in the popular Butchers & Bakers farm-to-table restaurant. All baked goods are prepared on premises; almost all food is sourced locally. Our buffet lunch, in a private area of the restaurant, will feature salad, salmon, chicken, vegetarian pasta, roasted vegetables, cookies, brownies, fresh fruit, and coffee/tea.
