The Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum enters Phase 4 of the New York State and Suffolk County reopening on Saturday, July 11.
Now, visitors will be able to enjoy more Vanderbilt attractions: the first floor of the Hall of Fishes marine museum; the Habitat and Stoll Wing animal dioramas; and the first-floor natural-history and cultural-artifact galleries in the Memorial Wing.
The Vanderbilt is becoming a popular picnic destination. Everyone is invited to bring lunch, spread out a blanket, and enjoy the gorgeous views of Northport Bay and sailboats.
The Estate grounds are a great place for kids to run, or to fly a kite. Visitors can also stroll the grounds and see the beautiful work of local garden designers and landscapers in the third annual Gardeners Showcase.
The Vanderbilt Mansion living quarters and Reichert Planetarium remain closed at this time.
The Museum will reopen the Vanderbilt Mansion living quarters Labor Day, and anticipates once again offering its popular, annual Living History tours.
The Vanderbilt grounds will be open to a limited number of visitors on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
Tickets are available online and at the gate.
Please stay safe and practice social distancing. Please wear a mask when unable to maintain six feet of social distance.
Bathrooms will be open to one family/visitor group at a time, and a custodian will sanitize bathroom touchpoints regularly throughout the day.
All visitors must carry out everything they bring with them to the property, including picnic/food waste, and water or beverage containers.
