Fodor's Expert Review Hill-Stead Museum

Farmington Museum/Gallery

Converted from a private home into a museum by its talented owner, Theodate Pope, a turn-of-the-20th-century architect, the house has a superb collection of French Impressionist art displayed in situ, including Claude Monet's haystacks and Edouard Manet's Guitar Player hanging in the drawing room. Poetry readings take place in the elaborate Beatrix Farrand–designed sunken garden every other week in summer.
