Visitor Tips & Policies

Welcome! Reynolda is for all to discover and we hope you enjoy your experience at our historic estate. We ask that you follow these guidelines during your visit:

Preserve the Past
We ask that everyone be respectful of one another, the artwork, and our Museum. Please keep a safe (arms-length) distance from all art and historic furnishings.

Keep it tidy
We invite you to store personal items in our complimentary lockers. Umbrellas, backpacks, overcoats, bags, purses, oversized cameras and strollers larger than umbrella-size should be stored in the lockers or coatroom. Bags larger than 10 inches are not allowed inside the galleries and historic house to ensure the preservation of our space.

Keep food and drink outside the Museum. Water fountains are available inside the Museum and restaurants are located in nearby Reynolda Village.

Share your experience
We allow photography with hand-held cameras for personal use, unless otherwise posted. No flash, tripods, or selfie sticks. Please keep a safe distance from artworks and furnishings when taking photos and be mindful of others.
