Plan a Visit

The best way to see the James J. Hill House is to take a 75-minute guided tour. The tour brings visitors through four floors of the house and includes a 10-minute video on James J. Hill. Tours are offered every half hour. Reservations are recommended. 

Guests can explore the art gallery as part of their tour or on their own for a $2 entry fee. The changing exhibit space features Minnesota art and artists.

Signature events are offered throughout the year, from concerts to theatrical events to theme tours. Group tours are also available.
