Explore More After Your Tour

Thank you for visiting Castle in the Clouds! There is more history throughout the property than can be shared with you in just one day. We hope you’ll explore this page to learn even more about Lucknow and the ways you can enjoy our beautiful property and the conserved land that surrounds it.


Browse our Virtual Library

Our ever-expanding virtual library includes hours of additional content to continue your exploration of the Lucknow estate! There, you can enjoy video content about the geology of the property and how the land was used before Lucknow came to be, learn about the Castle’s historic collection items, listen to an oral history, and even enjoy a beautiful rendition of a poem written by Olive Plant, the lady of Lucknow. The library also includes activities for children (and adults!), our latest blog posts, informational cards on each of the home’s rooms, and an archive of exhibits that have appeared in our Carriage House Gallery. This space is growing, so please check back often for even more opportunities to learn about Lucknow.

There are many ways you can support our meaningful non-profit even after your visit, each of them tax-deductible by the full extent allowed by law.

Make a one-time or a recurring donation  Any amount makes a difference and contributes to our ability to sustain this special place for future generations.

Adopt an artifact  Is there an artifact inside the Castle that you’re especially drawn to? You can help care for our historic collection by adopting (or “sponsoring”) one or more items on our adoption list.
