Things To Do
You'll find lots to do at Weir Farm National Historical Park all year long.
Experience Art in the Park
View original works of art throughout the park or pick up a pencil or paint brush yourself. From beginners who borrow our free-to-use supplies, to local plein air painters, to the park’s Artist-in-Residence, thousands of works of art are created here each year. Participate in one of our many free programs and be part of the artistic legacy of Weir Farm. Find details here.
