A staff member is available to drive patrons with lower mobility around the property in our John Deere Gator.

Fruitlands is an outdoor site. You may want to wear comfortable shoes and bring a hat. The Art Museum, Wayside Visitor Center, Fruitlands Museum Café and Fruitlands Museum Store are air-conditioned. LATE SEASON ADVICE: The historic buildings do not have climate control, therefore, visitors are advised to dress appropriately.


We welcome leashed dogs on the grounds. Only service dogs are allowed in the buildings. Please pick up after your dog so everyone can enjoy the grounds.
