*The mansion will be closed November 20th, 2023 through mid April 2024 for renovations. Our gardens and grounds will remain open to the public from dawn to dusk daily.*


Tours of the Highlands Mansion & Gardens are available by appointment only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Please call 215-641-2687 to schedule a tour time. Group tours and luncheons may be reserved by advanced appointment.  A fee is charged.


The Mansion is not open on Saturdays and Sundays except for special events, programs and rentals, or by prior reservation for a group tour. If no rentals or special events are using the garden, the gardens are open to the public, and you are welcome to park in the parking lot and walk the Gardens during daylight hours.  No fee is charged, but if you would like to support the ongoing restoration of this important garden, please feel free to make a donation by using the Membership and Donation button on our Home page or simply scanning our QR code to contribute via Venmo while strolling the grounds.


The Gardens and grounds are open from dawn till dusk.  We ask visitors to respect the historic nature of the gardens and grounds, the dedicated work of volunteers who have contributed to the restoration of the historic site, and the restful and contemplative nature of the formal gardens.  Sensible shoes are recommended if walking the grounds as footing in some areas is uneven. 


  • Dogs, even on leash, are not permitted to visit the formal gardens or the mansion.

  • A permit is required for photography and/or for artists painting on site, and a fee will be charged.  Please contact The Highlands office (215-641-2687) or in advance of your visit to make the necessary arrangements. The photography fee is $100 per hour for outdoor sessions and $300 per hour for indoor sessions.

  • The Mansion and Gardens are often rented for private weddings, parties, and events.  Please do not enter the mansion or gardens during a rental. 

  • The Highlands Mansion & Gardens is recognized by the Montgomery County Health Department as smoke-free, and is a member of the Montgomery County Smoke-Free Workplace Program.
