Meadow Brook Boy Scout Programs

Thank you for stopping by! We are currently hard at work improving our Boy Scout tours. Please check back for an update on our progress.

Bring your pack to Meadow Brook Hall and step back in time as you tour the mansion through one of our Meadow Brook Boy Scout programs. Meadow Brook Hall inspires and educates with its grand rooms and collections of fine and decorative art. The expansive collection provides Scouts with insight into local history that has had an international impact, making this estate, with its original furnishings unlike any place you have seen before.
