Welcome to Flower Hill

In compliance with CDC recommendations and in consideration of our community, Flower Hill will be postponing all in-person programming and tours until further notice. 

 

We will regularly assess our ability to reopen and will do so as soon as we consider it safe for visitors, staff, and volunteers.

Parking and Museum Entrance 

Limited parking is available for free on the museum grounds, accessible via W. 6th Street between Winflo and Pressler Street. Alternative parking will be detailed in the confirmation email sent to guests prior to their tour.

Our primary entrance is via the front door (under the columns). ADA access is available via the east entrance, alongside the driveway. Tours begin by the historic rose arbor on the east side of the home. 

Accessibility 

Select first floor historic rooms and exhibits are wheelchair accessible. Architectural and preservation concerns prevent us from being able to provide elevator service to second floor rooms; however, interpretive materials are available upon request for exhibits, displays, and the grounds. If you have any questions or concerns about accessibility, do not hesitate to contact us. 

Directions

Flower Hill is located 5 minutes from central downtown Austin, just a few blocks west of the Lamar and W. 6th intersection.

 

Our main gate entrance is tucked back from W. 6th street between Winflo and Pressler on the north side of the street.

 

1316 W. 6th Street 78703

 

Please note, the driveway is historic and very narrow. Wide vehicles and vehicles with little ground clearance may scrape on the historic drive, so please use caution as you navigate through the iron gate entrance.

 

The driveway and the on-site parking are only open to those who have made an appointment to tour the museum.  

We encourage carpooling or rideshare to visit our site. The Cap Metro 6th and Pressler stop is right in front of our property. We also have bike racks on site to support our bike commuters. 

Group Tours

We offer tours at discounted rates and outside our regular hours to groups from 6-30 people by prior reservation and can tailor our tours and activities to suit your group’s interests and schedule.

We especially welcome small school classes and homeschool groups. Please send your class tour request to info@flowerhillfoundation.org for more information about the reservation process and available dates. We offer admission for $5 per student with no additional charge for teachers, staff, and parents serving as chaperones.

All other groups are encouraged to contact us at least three weeks before their preferred tour date to confirm availability. We offer admission for adult group guided-tours for $10 per person.
