Discover why Heritage Museums & Gardens is a magnet for families—from kids to adults of all ages—during April vacation week, with great exhibits, programs, and activities that will appeal to everyone and create memories that will last a lifetime.
This season’s special exhibit, Painted Landscapes: Contemporary Views, presents premier American contemporary landscape painters offered in a beautiful collection that challenges our notion of landscape painting. To complement the exhibit, experienced as well as budding artists have the opportunity to create art outdoors together. At Hidden Hollow™, an enchanting two-acre outdoor discovery and exploration area that includes a giant treehouse, families can work together to build a forest mobile kinetic sculpture, nature collage, or drip sand sculpture.
Families can also enjoy outdoor discovery on Heritage’s 100 acres of nature trails, woodlands, and gardens; admire gems of the automotive world in Heritage’s collection Driven to Collect—and even take a family portrait in a Model T; appreciate American history in The Heritage Collection, which tells a story about our shared history, about ourselves, and about our future; ride a vintage carousel; picnic on the grounds; and more.
