Connecting people with nature, history, wildlife and each other.

Where nature, history and exploration come together.

Maymont is a 100-acre green space in the heart of Richmond, Virginia. We welcome everyone to explore our spectacular Gilded Age mansion, beautiful curated gardens, immersive nature center, interactive farm and rescued animal habitats—and to find moments of wonder while you wander our rolling hills.

The Robins Nature Center

Themed “Run of the River,” The Robins Nature Center highlights the remarkable ecology of the James River located along Maymont’s southern border in Richmond. The experience also emphasizes the natural history of the area and environmental stewardship opportunities for the community.

Grand Gardens

Maymont's gardens are like nothing else in Central Virginia—expansive, unique, well-maintained and ever-changing. No public garden today could dream of duplicating Maymont’s magic, to say nothing of its costly architecture, grand trees or diversity of plants. Explore the Italian Garden, Japanese Garden, the Arboretum, and several specialty gardens.

Maymont Mansion

A well-preserved document of Gilded Age design, the mansion illustrates the dynamic interplay between server and served, working class and upper class and Black and white through a compelling exhibition in its restored belowstairs rooms. The mansion is currently closed to prepare for the biggest preservation undertaking in Maymont's history.

Maymont Farm

The Maymont Farm offers hands-on animal encounters and insight into farm life. Children and adults alike are delighted by the crow of a rooster, the feel of a sheep’s wool and the nudge of a hungry goat.

Virginia Wildlife Trail

Take a walk on the wild side at Maymont’s outdoor wildlife habitats. All habitats feature Virginia native species (historic and present), most of which are wildlife rescues, in our 40-acre valley. Animals in our Raptor Valley, Bobcat, Red Fox, Black Bear, and Bald Eagle habitats are on view daily by 10am and move back indoors late afternoon.
