When you visit Glenstone, we invite you to engage directly with the art, architecture, and landscape.

Maps and minimal signage help direct you around the property, but there is no descriptive text. You are free to interpret Glenstone in your own way.

Outdoor sculptures are installed in a variety of terrain so comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

For information on our COVID-19 safety measures, please see our plan your visit page.

Patio

The Patio offers outdoor dining service on a first-come, first-served basis from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., weather permitting.

In response to COVID-19 related safety guidelines set forth by the Montgomery County Health Department, we’ve made the following changes:

• All orders are packaged in compostable containers.

• Tables are spaced six feet apart.

• Tables and chairs are cleaned and sanitized between each seating.

• To allow for touchless ordering and payment, guests place their orders by scanning a QR code on their mobile devices. Orders cannot be placed in advance.

• We ask all patrons to wear masks when they are not seated at a table. Please note: gaiters and masks with exhalation valves are not permitted.
