Admission to Glenstone is Always Free

At Glenstone, we strive to offer a serene and contemplative environment for our visitors. As we prepare to open The Pavilions, visitors may experience some construction work and noise, as well as limited access to some outdoor sculpture works. We appreciate your understanding and hope you will return to see our expansion in 2018.

We are open Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. All visits are scheduled on the hour.

We welcome same-day scheduled visits. Please schedule your visit below.

During your visit you can view the current exhibition and join a guided outdoor sculpture tour. Visits scheduled for 4 p.m. do not include an outdoor sculpture experience.

Outdoor sculpture tours are offered hourly 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting, and cover about one mile of varied terrain that includes mulched walkways, open fields, and wooded areas. We recommend visitors wear comfortable and durable footwear.

Due to expansion work, you will have limited access to Andy Goldsworthy’s Clay House (Boulder-Room-Holes) and Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller's Forest (for a thousand years). These works will only be accessible to visitors during outdoor sculpture tours on Sundays. 

To schedule a visit for groups larger than 15, request special accommodations, or for more information, please contact us at

We look forward to welcoming you.
