Can I bring my dog for walks at Hagley?
Hagley always welcomes service dogs. Hagley has created specific pet friendly events for you and your leashed, well socialized dog to enjoy. These events include Bike Hike & Brews Dog Days of Summer (the last Wednesday evening in June, July, and August) and our October Howl-o-ween event.
I have never been to fireworks and want to attend. How do I get tickets?
This exclusive member event, Fireworks at Hagley, is held two weeks in a row mid-June. All active members as of April 1 will receive a mailed invitation to this year’s show with a ticket order form enclosed. The number of tickets you are eligible to purchase is based on your membership level. See our member benefits chart for specific information. Five business days after you receive your mailed invitation, active members who have shared their email with us, will receive an email with a link to purchase tickets online through our website portal. Exceptions to the email option are members at the Sponsor, Benefactor, and Contributor, levels who have the opportunity to receive complimentary tickets based on their level of support.
Can I get a digital card in place of a printed membership card?
We hope this option will be available in the future!
Is food available on site? Can I picnic at Hagley?
There is a limited selection of vending machine options at Hagley located behind the barn in the Historic Home and Garden area. Since many guests spend a few hours to fully enjoy their Hagley experience, outside food and non-alcoholic beverages are welcome at Hagley. Picnic tables are located throughout the property including at the lower level of the barn in the Historic Home and Garden area, near the Machine Shop in the historic powder yard, and at the pavilion on Workers’ Hill.
What is Hagley’s Powder Keg Kids Club and how can I sign up my children or grandchildren?
If you join at the Household level or above, your children or grandchildren, ten years of age and younger, can join our Powder Keg Kids Club. Simply add their names to your membership when you join or call the membership office and ask to have your children/grandchildren added to your membership. Throughout the year children can participate in hands-on science programs at Science Saturdays, Invention Convention, attend our Summer Camp programs, and more.
