At Heritage Museums & Gardens we celebrate the landscapes and culture of our region, and inspire people of all ages to explore, discover and learn together.  We do this through excellence in horticulture, garden design, outdoor discovery, STEM education, and the exhibition of great collections.


By connecting people to our shared cultures and environment, we promote a deeper understanding of ourselves, each other, and our world.

Explore, discover & learn

Heritage Museums & Gardensis located on 100 acres of magnificent grounds and trails on the banks of Shawme Pond in Historic Sandwich. The gardens feature internationally important collections of rhododendrons, including those created by Charles Dexter, who did his ground-breaking plant hybridizing work here. Additional horticultural areas of interest include a comprehensive collection of hydrangeas, a collection of over 1,000 varieties of daylilies, hostas, herb, heather gardens, and more than a thousand varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers along beautiful and easily walked paths.

Hidden Hollow, a family-friendly outdoor discovery area, is a place for exploration of the outdoors and our place in it. Furthermore, Heritage offers three gallery buildings housing permanent exhibits of world-class automobiles, a working vintage carousel, American folk art, and featured special exhibitions.

The Hundred Acre School, our Prek-Grade one school, engages students in active learning and preparation for success in school using Heritage’s collections, facilities, and gardens.
