This is for the Winter event Gardens Aglow which just is not be done to the same standards as other events at Heritage Museum which is a great place to visit during the Summer. Purchased your tickets on line which saves you from having to stand in line once you get there. But at $18 its way overpriced. Strawberry Banke... More

We stopped by on our way back home from Cape Cod, and we were glad we made the stop. The gardens are wonderful and very peaceful. There are a lot of trails to follow, and the museum was a joy to go through, even for those that do not have an interest in antique cars! Definitely take your time walking... More

Visiting Heritage Museums & Gardens during the Gardens Aglow event from Thanksgiving to Christmas is a wonderful family opportunity. The gardens and trees are lit up beautifully and there is so much to see as you stroll, at night, through the gardens. The Merry-Go-Round is open and free for all and the line moved very quickly. If you want to... More

First of all let me say this review is for Garden Aglow only - not Heritage Museum which is a great place to visit. Every year I try to take my husband someplace different to view Christmas lights as his birthday is right before Christmas. This was his choice for 2014. We purchased the tickets on line which saved us... More

The Gardens are just Beautiful at Heritage. Also there is the Museum to go thru. I totally enjoyed all of the great antique cars and such. Leave yourselves time for Heritage. You'll enjoy it more.

Came back to Heritage Gardens for their "Gardens Aglow" program and it was well worth the visit. Stunning walk with thousands of beautiful Christmas lights strung about the trees. Slipping on hot cider, riding the carousel and watching dancers perform the Nutcracker. In the buildings were more stunning decorations and Santa greeting Children in one of the vintage cars. They...

If you do your own landscaping at home, heritage gardens is a great place to get ideas. I have visited during the growing season, and at the tail end, and have gotten some great ideas. It is also a beautiful place to go and take in the beauty.

We loved this place when visiting three years ago. It was a different experience this time. We were VERY tired and this was a little more than I needed when I was so exhausted. You have to Walk a LOT. When I rode the carousel three years ago, it was my first time EVER to ride one, pretty special. This... More

We visited on the final day of the season. We enjoyed hiking the grounds and discovering the lovely bug sculptures. We had fun riding on the carousel. The Lily car collection is very nice too.
