Wave Hill House Tours

July 4 may be a special day for celebration—and Wave Hill is open to facilitate a serene enjoyment of the day—but we feel it will be overshadowed this year by Welcome Home Weekend, July 6 and 7. That’s when Wave Hill House, our beloved Hudson River mansion, closed for two years for renovation, reopens to visitors. Admission to the grounds is free all weekend, thanks to the generous support of target.

This week also ushers in Sunset Wednesdays, a signature summer program at Wave Hill. You can see why—music, walks, yoga, dinner overlooking the majestic Hudson.

Staff-led tours of the newly renovated Wave Hill House offer visitors a glimpse of the house’s venerable history and its new and exciting upgrades. Tours are ongoing over a two-hour period, starting late morning. Free, and admission to the grounds is free all weekend. Target Free Welcome Home Weekend event.
