Meadow Brook Daily Tours

A guided tour of the 88,000 square foot house takes visitors on a journey through time. The unique features of the home reflect the opulence of the country estate era, including elaborately detailed carved wood and stone, handmade hardware and ceramic art tile, ornately molded and carved plaster ceilings, stained glass window insets, crystal and art glass lighting fixtures, and gold-plated bathroom fittings.

Visitors Needing Special Assistance

The Meadow Brook Hall General House Tour is barrier-free and wheelchair accessible.

We do allow electric wheelchairs and scooters in Meadow Brook Hall. However, due to the tight spaces in the historic home, they are limited to select areas of the house.

Areas that cannot be safely traversed with electric wheelchairs or scooters include the children’s bedroom wings, the French room, Adams room and English rooms. If absolutely necessary, we can arrange for the reservation of one of Meadow Brook’s wheelchairs for the visitor to use instead. In order to reserve a wheelchair, please confirm the date and time that the individual requesting this accommodation will be touring to ensure its availability.

To arrange for sign language interpretation of a tour or a special lecture, call (248) 364-6200.
