About Heritage Museums & Gardens
American history and culture stand proud against the botanical backdrop of a 100-acre estate at Heritage Museums & Gardens, where guests can unplug and relax in natural beauty. It first became a homestead in 1677, eventually being developed as a farm (where Heritage's world-renowned rhododendrons were first bred) and then, in 1969, opened to the public.
Size: Three gallery spaces and 100 acres of gardens and walking trails lined with about 3,500 species of plants, including numerous varieties of rhododendrons that bloom each spring
Eye Catcher: Beautifully maintained New England flower gardens and water features.
Permanent Mainstay: The American Art & Carousel Gallery's hand-carved carousel, completed by Charles Looff in 1908; unlimited rides are included with admission; The Heritage Collection, a newly reinstalled exhibit featuring American art and artifacts from Heritage’s collection of 12,000+ items.
Special Exhibitions Gallery: The gallery building is a replica of the Revolutionary War–era Temple of Virtue where George Washington bestowed the first Purple Heart to a wounded soldier in Windsor, NY.
