Right now they have a Japanese art exhibit, which is above average. The mansion is very pretty on the outside and well manicured gardens. The inside is not very worthy of a mansion tour. There is not much to look at on the inside.

The recently renovated mansion to its original Queen Anne architectural design and surrounding gardens should be part of your Falmouth itinerary. Close to the residence are the light opera theater and Beebe. words. Minutes away from downtown and. The Shining Sea bike path, it's easily accessible by foot, bike or car. An additional treat is the Kanreki exhibit of contemporary... More

This is a fun place to visit, especially if they have a special exhibition that interests you. The house is more of a special event space than a restored home now, but the family that built it had an interesting history there and in Falmouth plus the house went through many changes since that late 1800s when it was built....

For a 5 dollar fee we got to tour this magnificent building and grounds. One room has a lot of displays of the history of the family that owned this house, which is fascinating. The grounds are lovely and its amazing the restoration that has brought this mansion back to what it might have looked like in its heyday.

I am a museum professional so I can be critical of museums. This one is an interesting mix, shining more for its grounds and architecture than its history. The building was restored in 2005 so it's a nice backdrop for contemporary art. The art was decent local/ regional work. Nothing famous or breathtaking and a little non-sequitur but unless you're...

The fairy gardens that they had at Highfield Hall this summer were outstanding. Armed with a map, all 6 of my older grandchildren had a wonderful time finding the houses in the woods. Christmas is another time to visit Highfield Hall. They have spectacular decorations, the house is a reproduction, not a restoration and it is really looks like an... More

Hi graceoliver, Thank you so much for your rave review! We are glad you enjoy the wonderful offerings we have here at Highfield Hall & Gardens. Fun fact: we actually are a restoration! The house was built in 1878 by the Beebe family of Boston. After the Beebe era and after exchanging ownership multiple times, the house was abandoned and... More
