As a museum, Hay House shares with its visitors the philosophy of historic preservation and introduces them to preservation methods and technology. Hay House has become a center for educational, civic, and cultural events.
Purchase your museum tickets today for a guided tour. Each tour teaches visitors about the national significance of the architecture, its technological advances, and its artistic sophistication. Guests also hear a rich social history: the Johnstons, Feltons, and Hays were all historically significant families, adapting the house to their own lifestyles. Each year, approximately 15,000-20,000 visitors enjoy the house’s decorative arts collection, stained-glass windows, and handsome cabinetry.
For those who would like to see an exclusive 360 degree view of Macon, take our Top of the House Tour. This tour allows guest into the two-level Cupola and is offered in addition to the regular tour. This tour does require additional stairs and walking involved.
