There is an access ramp to the ground floor of the mansion and a ground-floor-only tour available. There is no elevator, and the second and third floors are only accessible by stairs. Surrounding footpaths in the State Park are unpaved and gravel.

CARE & SAFETY POLICY
For your safety, bags/containers larger than 16”x16”x8″ are prohibited and all bags are subject to inspection.
We welcome visitors to photograph and document their visit to Hyde Hall for personal use only—no flash photography, please!
You can help us with our conservation and preservation efforts. Please refrain from touching furniture, china, paintings or other items in the collection. A single touch may not seem like much, but even the slightest contact can damage surfaces, discolor china, rust or tarnish metal, or lead to the potential of accidental breakage.
We all get hungry or thirsty, but eating, drinking, and chewing gum are not allowed within the mansion, except where authorized by museum staff during special events.
We understand that life happens and plans change. If you prefer to cancel your tour, you can request an alternative day for a future visit or a refund per our cancellation policy. All cancellations must be notified 7 days before your scheduled tour date.
For the safety and security of our guests and Hyde Hall employees, we reserve the right to cancel any tour and will issue a full refund in these instances. In the event of cancellation, Hyde Hall is not responsible for any travel costs.
