Museum Tour The Hay House is one of Georgia’s most distinguished structures, an 18,000 square foot mansion built during the mid 1800s. We have included a snapshot of what you will enjoy on your museum tour, which is offered daily. View the museum tour hours here and purchase tickets here. The Basement The museum tour includes the Ground Level, which was used as servants’ work areas. The family also used the downstairs as summer living quarters, because the air temperature was much cooler downstairs than it was on the upper floors. The Main Floor The Main Level is the most lavish and ornately decorated room in the museum tour. It features three parlors, the Dining Room, and the Art Gallery. The impressive ceiling heights range upwards of 32 feet. The Second Floor The floor plan is derived from Italian villas, with two bedrooms on either side of a central hallway, four bathrooms, and a terrace overlooking the front lawn. Behind the Scenes This special feature to the museum tour is offered several times each year and provides access to all seven levels of Hay House, including the inside of the Wine Cellar, various attic spaces, and the Secret Room. The Art Throughout the museum tour, you’ll enjoy the magnificent work of art prominently displayed throughout the Hay House. Work includes paintings, pottery, beautiful stained glass, decor, and more.
