This museum has a little something for everyone, at least with the current exhibits. We found the car museum very interesting. Have you ever wondered how early cars, some without windows as such, kept bugs from crashing in - well, you know? You can see the early 'sports' cars of the day as well as a personal favorite - a...

I'm not going to lie...I'm not a usual fan of museums and gardens in general but my family wanted to visit so I obliged. I have to say - I am SO GLAD I went. It was gorgeous, the car display was phenomenal. So many cars, a great guide walking around giving info, you could get right up close and... More

Heritage offers many different things for visitors. There are beautiful gardens, an area called "Hidden Hollow" that is perfect for children, an antique working carousel, a museum with vintage cars, a nice gift shop, to name a few. It's possible to spend most of a day there making new discoveries, or just enjoying the garden displays.

Something for everyone. Great, gorgeous and bountiful gardens, Hollywood costume Museum, Antiques Car museum and a merry-go-round too!! Great exercise too, although the very friendly employees generously gave us a lift if needed. Nice food to buy in the "picnic" tent. Overall a great relaxing visit to wind up our 10 day stay in Massachusetts.

Been coming to sandwich for many years but for the first time actually visited the museum and gardens. What a fantastic and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. The gardens are a delight and especially so in the afternoon fall sunshine. Will be back again next year

Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich is a beautiful, peaceful place to visit. We traveled in the fall so the gardens were winding down. The museums are wonderful and informative.

We visited Heritage Gardens this year for the 9th time and we love it. The cars are great and we love bashing the xylophones at Hidden Hollow. The plants are fabulous and we always enjoy taking our time wandering around. The main attraction for us has always been the Carousel and it never disappoints. There is something new to see... More

Great sot to spend a few hours, meander the picturesque gardens, ride the carousel, visit the motor museum and check out the costumes worn in recent movies. Something for everyone including mini cart transit if walking is a challenge

This was a recommendation from a friend to visit while on Cape Cod. Such a great place to see. My husband and I enjoyed the antique cars and it was fun to see President Taft's automobile. I thought the movie costume exhibit was terrific. Took a ride on the carousel and explored the beautiful gardens. Lots of up and down... More

Great for kids and adults. The vintage automobile museum is amazing. We saw a great movie costume exhibit. The carousel is beautiful. The grounds are impeccable. There is a outdoor learning center for children complete with a tree house. The lake walk was beautiful
