Visitor Guide


Pendarvis is situated on a 4.5 acre hillside in the middle of Mineral Point. Many of the pathways are level but somewhat rugged. The Visitor Center and the Pendarvis Store both are wheelchair accessible. Due to the nature of historic structures, access to the other buildings is limited. Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals requiring mobility assistance. Please call us at 608-987-2122 before your visit to make arrangements.

While no pets are allowed on the museum grounds, service animals are permitted for persons with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

No guns, knives, or weapons allowed on premises.
