Due to COVID, Nemours invites you to enjoy the gardens and grounds. Half-priced admission to our Gardens and Grounds is available 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. We're also unveiling our new, open air entrance, located on the campus of Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children at 1600 Rockland Road, Wilmington, DE., just follow the signs for Nemours Estate.
To ensure contactless entry, reservations are required by calling our Visitor Center at (302) 651-6912.
The Mansion is not currently open to guests. Shuttle service will not be offered, so comfortable walking shoes are strongly encouraged. Masking is required in restrooms and within 6 feet of others, and guests are welcome to bring bottled water as well as other nonalcoholic beverages onto the Estate.
Nemours Estate is where a visitor might believe he or she magically just stepped into Europe. Modeled after Versailles, Nemours is a masterpiece of design with its mansion, fountains, artwork, gilded sculpture and what is reputedly the largest formal French garden in North America. The mansion is now self-paced and self-guided, with interpreters stationed at key locations. Visitors will be able to tour the mansion on their own, spending as much or as little time there as they’d like. We no longer require or recommend advance reservations, except for groups of 10 or more visitors. Open May through December.
