Offered only in spring and autumn, this special tour enables you to experience the Castle illuminated at night, and is longer than daytime tours (100 minutes). Docents in period dress bring 1930s history to life as they move silently through the sumptuous rooms of Casa Grande. A vintage newsreel in Hearst’s private theater rounds out the evening.
In 2017, the Evening Tours will be offered on most Friday and Saturday evenings in October (with the exception of October 14th.) In November, the tour will be offered on the first three Fridays and Saturdays of the month. In December, the Evening Tour will be conducted on the 1st, 2nd, 8th, 10th, 11th and 15th of the month.
