During our regular hours of operation, Wistariahurst offers guided tours of the first and second floors, admittance to the current gallery exhibit, and entry to the Carriage House permanent exhibit & Gift Shop.

Visitors are led through the elegantly furnished 26 room mansion and are given the opportunity to take self guided tours of the gardens or explore the whole landscape of Holyoke. The museum features original leather wall coverings, columns, elaborate woodwork and an interesting tale of how two generations perceived and used the house very differently. The museum’s permanent collection includes decorative arts; paintings and prints, textiles and a rich manuscript collection of family and local papers.
