each day Norlands is open to the public. Norlands’ exhibits add interactive & informative stops throughout your tour. Other special happenings are listed below:
We are now closed for the season. Check back for more information in Spring 2023.
What to bring & what not to bring on your visit to Norlands.
Norlands is a large site. Our historic buildings are, as they were, unheated and uncooled. Most of your self-guided tour will be outside crossing uneven ground. Therefore, we recommend guests wear appropriate outdoor clothing for the weather during your visit and good walking shoes to comfortably enjoy your time with us.
Enjoy the scenery. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch – we’ll even provide a quilt to spread on the lawn if you ask in the Admissions office. Picnic tables are also available if you prefer. Norlands also offers cold drinks and light snacks as well.
There are several beautiful “selfie spots” at Norlands. We do allow photography outside. However, to preserve historic artifacts and interiors, please no inside photography.
We love our animals. However, we DO NOT ALLOW PETS OR THERAPY ANIMALS ON SITE. Please understand, we are a working farm, with historic buildings, and must ask that you leave your four-legged friends (even the best-behaved ones) at home. Pets cannot be left in your vehicle in the parking lot. It is Norlands’ policy to contact Animal Control if a pet is left unattended.
Norlands DOES ALLOW documented service animals, as protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Under the ADA, a service animal is defined as “a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.” Service animals must be on a leash and never left unattended. Please clean up after them.
