Visit Us

Visits to Andalusia can take a bit of planning.  Please understand — it’s not that we’re unfriendly, it’s just that we are deeply committed to preserving this irreplaceable piece of history on the Delaware. Once you visit, you’ll see what we mean.

Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions section of our website before you visit to learn about our health and safety procedures, as well as programming, for this season. 

Tours of the Big House will not be available at the start of the 2021 tour season, but we are hopeful that indoor tours will resume later in the season.

We recommend sturdy footwear as some paths are unmade. Our tours do continue in wet weather, so sturdy shoes or boots along with suitable weatherproof clothing are recommended.
