Heritage Museums & Gardens offers landscaped gardens, walking trails, galleries, sculpture, and more. Stroll around the public gardens, which cover 40.5 hectares (100 acres), and see the rhododendrons, a legacy of former owner Charles O. Dexter, who was a celebrated rhododendron hybridizer. Visit the automobile gallery to view the museum's permanent collection of antique and classic cars, including a 1909 white steam car model M that was owned by President William Taft. Head to the American art and carousel gallery to ride one of the antique, hand-carved horses that adorn the 1908 carousel. Grab a bite to eat at the Magnolia Cafe or bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds. To visit Heritage Museums & Gardens on your trip to Sandwich, use our Sandwich travel route planner.
Heritage Museums & Gardens reviews
We enjoyed attending the well done and organized Aglow event. Low crowds even on a sold out night, ample parking, kept all the kids age 5-15 entertained for over an hour and very safe. Nice addition..... more »
Great beautiful outdoor space with great exhibits. The car collection was impressive. The gardens are meticulous and I can only imagine what the grounds look like when most things are in... more »
Visited here while vacationing on the Cape. Nice activity to do if you are looking for some variety on your vacation. Child friendly. Car museum was excellent. The café was excellent as well and I recommend eating there. Took 1 star off as I thought the children's activities could be a little better. This is a GEM (great experience for members) according to AAA.
Lovely gardens, amazing car collection, nostalgic carousel, art exhibits, wonderful walking trails, a large shaded labyrinth and more! Something for everyone! Children of all ages can take delight in Hidden Hollows with its huge tree house and its variety of nature games, music makers, and imagination generators. For those who prefer to ride through the property, there are shuttles/chauffeur-driven golf carts. This special place is an ever changing, always worthwhile retreat - a place to walk and breathe in beauty.
