Hearst Castle Closed Due To Emergency Road Repairs

Due to significant storms that caused damage to the roadway leading up to the Historic Monument, Hearst Castle is temporarily closed. California State Parks is dedicated to making sure that all measures are taken to insure visitor safety. We have activated an emergency contract process to expedite the necessary road repairs. The work is expected to take 6 to 9 months. Once completed, Hearst Castle will welcome back visitors.

Hearst Castle tours and the Visitor Center is currently closed. When we reopen, advanced reservations will be required to visit Hearst Castle and/or the Visitor Center

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.
