Christmas at Castle Hill Sensory-Friendly Hours

Christmas at Castle Hill

About Christmas at Castle Hill Sensory-Friendly Hours

Visiting Castle Hill at Christmas is a time-honored tradition. Don’t miss this year’s Travels with the Cranes. Each room in our 1920s mansion is decorated for the holidays drawing inspiration from Crane travels around the world, including Paris, Japan, Egypt, and New York.

Enjoy freshly baked cookies and hot chocolate, try the Crane holiday eye spy, and shop in the Castle Hill Gift Shop during your visit.

Timed entry will limit the number of guests for the comfort and safety of guests and staff. 10AM & 10:30AM sensory-friendly entry times will admit only 36 guests per time. Music will be played at a lower volume.

Advance reservations are strongly recommended. Ipswich residents: apply discount code “IPSWICH” for resident rate and show resident beach sticker or other identification at gate. Children ages 4 and under are admitted free; ages 5-14 receive the discounted child rate.
