Heritage Museums & Gardens celebrates American culture and inspires people of all ages to explore, discover and learn together. Located on 100 acres of gardens and nature trails, Heritage holds a significant collection of specialty gardens, water features, and sculpture. Hidden Hollow, an interactive family-friendly area, allows for exploration of the natural world and learning about the environment. Heritage boasts three gallery buildings housing automobiles, American folk art, historical artifacts, a vintage carousel, and special exhibitions.

The 2015 special exhibitions include The Wyeths: America Reflected (June 6 - September 27), featuring paintings by three generations of America’s best known art family; Secret Shelters (June 6 – October 13), artistic shelters tucked around Heritage’s gardens designed for contemplating nature, meditating, and more; the American Art Collection (April 18 – October 15), featuring beloved Heritage-owned artifacts in a new display, including American paintings, rare artifacts and the famed military miniatures; and Driven to Collect (April 18 – October 15), featuring an impressive collection of antique automobiles within a replica of the Shaker Round Barn in Hancock, Massachusetts. Opening in May is The Aerial Adventure at Heritage, featuring interpretive trails and five "aerial" trails with rope walks, moving planks, tunnels, zip lines, and other similar features.

Open April 18 – October 15, 10am-5pm, daily.
