Basic Information

Weir Farm National Historical Park is a National Park for Art that preserves the life and work of Julian (J.) Alden Weir, a leading figure in the American Impressionist movement. The home, studios, and a significant portion of the landscape remain largely intact as one of the nation’s finest remaining landscapes of American art. The park continues to be a source of inspiration for artists and visitors to carry on this artistic tradition.

Park Grounds and parking lot are open daily, sunrise to sunset, year-round. Visit the park on your own using maps, brochures, self guided tours, the National Park Passport Stamp, and Junior Ranger activities located on the front porch of the visitor center, or visit virtually by exploring the resources here on the park website.

November through April, all park buildings are closed for the off season, including restroom facilities. Please plan accordingly, and check back often as conditions are subject to change.

Dogs: You are welcome to walk your dog at Weir Farm National Historical Park and the Weir Preserve, the 110-acre network of hiking trails directly adjacent to the property, as long as it remains leashed. Please pick up after your pet - a pet waste station is located in the parking lot, at the Weir Pond trailhead, and behind the Burlingham Barn/Restrooms.
