After being closed for two years, Hearst Castle will once again be open to the public.

The COVID-19 pandemic along with severe rainstorms, which damaged the access road to the castle in early 2021, temporarily caused Hearst Castle to close its doors.

Beginning May 11, the estate, located off Hwy 1 in San Simeon, will be welcoming visitors back. Tour tickets are available starting Thursday, March 31.

Ticket prices start at $30 each for adults and $15 each for kids.

As part of the delayed 100-year anniversary of the construction of the castle, a new tour honoring the castle's renowned architect, Julia Morgan, has been added.

Museum staff recommend visitors make reservations in advance. Tickets can be reserved here.
