  • My mom and I (both residents of Santa Clarita for 20+ years) stopped by for a Sunday afternoon tour of Hart's home. We were pleasantly surprised to see not only the beautiful house itself, but also...  more »
  • Good tour decent, needed more questions for group to make tour better. House is unusual, great sculptures, could lengthen tour to cover furnishings. Be sure to drive car to top if you have mobility...  more »
  • Insightful and interesting museum that was the home of silent film star William Hart. He bequeathed the property to the city of L.A. with the following stipulations: the museum and park remains free for the public's enjoyment and animals must live in the property. Well there is a wonderful barnyard with ducks, geese, chickens, rabbits, pigs, alpacas and wild boars. Delightful! Plus the Heritage Junction and campground are next to the William Hart Hall where you can learn about the history of the area from docents. I took a terrific tour of the William Hart museum and highly recommend it. Tours offered WED through SUN 11-4PM. Photography without flash allowed and our docent was very knowledgeable of the home, sculptures and artwork, architecture and life of Mr. Hart. Absolutely a gem of a place. Hike a few of the trails and learn about Fritz, Mr. Hart's beloved horse!
  • Great musuem and grounds. House is very interesting. Glad W. Hart left a legacy behind him for the future generations to see. Houses are built like that anymore. I was going to add photos but everyone else's photo depict this place well.
