Please join us for a private virtual tour "At Home with the Impressionists" led by our personal museum guide Kate Ebner through the historic house known as Hill-Stead.

Take a close, critical, and unhurried look at some of the most significant paintings by Impressionist painters. Learn about the family that traveled the world to find them. Discover Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, and the works of American artist, James McNeill Whistler, all collected by Alfred Atmore Pope for the enjoyment of his family, friends, and guests—like you!
