Garden tours will be limited to one group of no more than six people. The house will not be available for tours.

  • Admission is free for children under six years of age and Friends of the Shadows.

The Shadows on the Teche says that in preparation for reopening, the visitor center, gardens, and restroom building have all been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. Staff have installed shields around the front desk in the visitor center, providing an additional protective barrier between staff and visitors.

Masks wearing is encouraged when on site and if social distancing is not possible. Staff will be required to wear masks when on site and participate in a vigorous cleaning and sanitizing schedule.

Hand sanitizer and masks will be available for visitors to use.
