Open year-round, the Arboretum offers exciting benefits for the whole family, including free admission for children age 15 and under when accompanied by an adult member. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum specializes in getting kids "up close and personal" with plants in a hands-on way. Join in the fun and explore the magical world of flowers, leaves, roots and stems through summer day camps and the Children's Garden. Young ones can experience green fun with an adult through our preschool programs and free play outside in the Arboretum's Green Play Yard. Families can explore a variety of nature topics together with free activities every weekend at the Marion Andrus Learning Center. With more than 1,200 acres of gardens and tree collections, prairie and woods and miles of trails there is always something new to explore.
Many programs and classes available for adults, families and schools. Check out the art galleries, library, dine at the restaurant and find something special at the gift shop. The Arboretum is a beautiful place for weddings, family pictures, events and more.
