Garden and Estate Open to All

Winterthur will reopen fully on October 1, with access to the museum, galleries, and garden, and 25 miles of walking trails.

The well-being of our visitors and our staff is our highest priority, so various safety measures remain in place.

Capacity in all areas is limited, and reservations are required. When you visit, please bring a face mask to wear, as they are required in all indoor spaces at all times. Outdoors, face masks are required when it is difficult to maintain a safe social distance of six feet from people who are not from your household. Wearing of face masks is also required on trams tours and guided walks. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a face mask, we ask that you do not visit at this time. Also, please follow one-directional paths and take other precautions as posted on-site.

The Pavilion Café is open with limited capacity Friday–Sunday, 11:00 am–2:00 pm. Our stores are open with limited capacity to ensure social distancing Tuesday–Sunday, 12:00–5:00 pm.

We sincerely hope you will find beauty and tranquility at Winterthur. Please make your reservations online or by phone (800.448.3883, x7029). Check out our full fall calendar of event happening on-site and online.
