If you are planning to bring a group that will arrive in 3 or more vehicles, please call (203) 834-1896 in advance to make arrangements. We encourage you to bring your friends and family, and appreciate carpooling when possible due to limited parking spaces available at the park. Please note that the parking lot cannot accommodate RVs, buses, or other large vehicles.
There are no guided tours December through March. People interested in seeing the landscape can pick up a Self-Guiding Walking Tour brochure or a Painting Sites Guide on the porch outside the visitor center.

Painter Julian Alden Weir installed stars on the ceiling of all three of his studios. He had three studios: one in New York City, one in Windham, CT and one behind his home in Branchville, CT. Visitors will be able to see the original stars in his Branchville studio at Weir Farm National Historic Site once the Weir Studio has been restored in late 2013.
