Plan Your Visit
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.
ADVISORY FOR GUESTS: The Maymont Children’s Farm, including the barn and adjacent parking lot, is closed for renovation and improvements. The re-opening date has not been scheduled, but work is expected to continue until this fall 2016. Guests can still access the estate through the Nature & Visitor Center and Historical Estate (Hampton Street) entrances, and the majority of livestock will remain on-site, visible in the farm pastures during the day and spending nights in a temporary shelter.
