Supporting a legacy of art, nature and creativity

Who We Are

Established in 2015, Friends of Weir Farm NHS provides support for projects and programs that directly benefit the park, which attracts an estimated 38,000 annual visitors.


We are one of more than 200 groups that work in conjunction with the National Park Service (NPS) to support the national parks. Weir Farm and most national parks benefit from a mix of private and public funding to raise awareness and appreciation, as well as support programming and investment for restoration and preservation.

Whether it’s securing resources and lending our time to support Weir Farm NHS, we work closely with both park staff and volunteers to enhance visitor experiences and advance the values of the park.

Weir Farm is a treasured place for our organization, and we are focused on sharing its beauty, tradition, and spirit with the public.


The grounds of the 68-acre national park are open year-round from dawn to dusk, and you are welcome to explore the park on your own. To customize your visit, help yourself to park brochures, self-guided tours, Junior Ranger activities, and the National Park Passport stamp found on the Visitor Center porch.

The Visitor Center and historic buildings are open May to October, and plein air painters, aspiring artists, and nature lovers are welcome year round.


Grounds are open daily, year-round from sunrise to sunset. May 1 – October 31, Wednesday through Sunday:

  • Visitor Center and Museum Store open 10 am – 4 pm.
  • Free tours of the Weir House – 11 am, 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm. Tours limited to 12 visitors, first come, first served.
  • Weir and Young Art Studios open 10 am – 4 pm.
  • Borrow art supplies on the Visitor Center porch.
