Maymont

GENERAL INFORMATION

Plan your visit to Maymont.

Maymont's grounds are admission-free, but donations are requested in many of our indoor exhibits (see below). Fees are required for the Nature Center exhibits and special programs and tours. See our calendar for a list of upcoming activities.

A first visit to Maymont is best started at the Robins Nature & Visitor Center—Maymont's front door—but a history lover will soon find a path to the 1893 Maymont Mansion, while a plant lover will find the elaborate Japanese and Italian gardens. And animal lovers will delight in the Nature Center, Wildlife Exhibits and Children's Farm. Seekers of solitude will select the perfect spot under a stately elm or beside a babbling brook.
