Stroll around the public gardens, which cover 40.5 hectares (100 acres), and see the rhododendrons, a legacy of former owner Charles O. Dexter, who was a celebrated rhododendron hybridizer. Visit the automobile gallery to view the museum's permanent collection of antique and classic cars, including a 1909 white steam car model M that was owned by President William Taft. Head to the American art and carousel gallery to ride one of the antique, hand-carved horses that adorn the 1908 carousel.

Heritage Museums & Gardens reviews
Love everything about this place. Something for kids, families, car buffs, horticulturists, and lovers. An hour or a day..... never enough. Two or three times each summer more »
Amazing place, friendly staff and lovely food. 10/10 would recommend. The views are lovely and access to all areas of the park. more »
Visited here while vacationing on the Cape. Nice activity to do if you are looking for some variety on your vacation. Child friendly. Car museum was excellent. The café was excellent as well and I recommend eating there. Took 1 star off as I thought the children's activities could be a little better. This is a GEM (great experience for members) according to AAA.
Lovely gardens, amazing car collection, nostalgic carousel, art exhibits, wonderful walking trails, a large shaded labyrinth and more! Something for everyone! Children of all ages can take delight in Hidden Hollows with its huge tree house and its variety of nature games, music makers, and imagination generators. For those who prefer to ride through the property, there are shuttles/chauffeur-driven golf carts. This special place is an ever changing, always worthwhile retreat - a place to walk and breathe in beauty.
