I couldn't figure out why we hadn't visited sooner. Weir Farm is valuable as an historic site and a beautiful example of New England flora and fauna. The studios and farmhouse are beautifully restored and preserved and trails, and gardens are well maintained. We will definitely return!

We had a very nice few hours but there are limitations from November 1 to April 30 (today!). I knew the limitations before I went so ok not complaining. Beautiful grounds. Not ideal if you have a stroller with you. Walk down to the pond is probably between 400 and 800 meters. It was very cool to see real artists... More

Originally a summer home ofJohn Alden Weir and "en plain air" painting salon for some of New England's impressionistic painters @ 1900's. Wires home has been restored as well as his studio. The grounds are gorgeous and invite you to stroll, walk, paint anywhere on the grounds. There is lovely museum shop as well.

Weir Farm National Historic site celebrates the life and inspiration of American impressionist painter J. Alden Weir, and really the entire impressionist movement broadly. It offers picturesque walks around the farm with the intent of mimicking the environment Weir drew inspiration from. It's a nice enough site, but it's very small, and unless you're a fan of art, it's not... More

I've been to Weir Farm several times to hike through the woods. Unfortunately, it's winter, so all the buildings are closed. But it does have some good trails.

A really beautiful spot. Created by artists, there are still active artists who come and work on the property. Very nice to walk around, and the rangers were very helpful. Peaceful and easy to see why this appeals to artists.

Our family loves the National Park system and Weir Farm is one of the hidden gems located in CT. The park is in a beautiful setting with very knowledgeable volunteers and rangers.
