Hearst Castle Now Open for Tours.

Advanced reservations recommended. Face coverings are not currently required, but strongly recommended.

The Enchanted Hill, as Hearst called his beloved hilltop retreat, soon came to be understood as a museum: he filled the buildings and grounds with thousands of works of art purchased specifically to furnish the estate. These historic objects from around the world can be enjoyed today in the gardens, guest houses, and main building called Casa Grande. Samples from the collection are highlighted below.
