A Real Gem

Beautiful grounds and expert friendly staff. Great visitor center with restaurant. If we lived nearby we would come often to view various flowers as they bloomed.

One of the most scenic areas in the southwest metro area of Minneapolis. Bring your camera, don't be in a hurry, enjoy all of the flowers and gardens.

We are a little lucky, in that we live only 3 miles from this wonderful oasis at the edge of the Twin Cities. The University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum (The ARB) is like belonging to a Country Club. Miles of trails, great events, Art and Sculpture, and the most complete offering of flower, shrub and tree species anywhere in this... More

The MN Arboretum is an amazing place. Not only do they have many paved paths for handicap and wheelchair accessibility, the Lego exhibit holds the attention of children and adults alike. The sculptures are spread out throughout the grounds making it kind of a treasure hunt of sorts. Beautiful gardens and waterfalls are sprinkled around - a Japanese garden, a... More

Bring your camera because you will walk away with 100's of pictures of beautiful flowers, greenery, landscaping, and sculptures! They have free days, too; keep your eye open for those!

As a member, the arboretum keeps me coming back with interesting seasonal exhibits, events and classes. The ever Evolving landscape is a source of inspiration and the volunteers and staff are a wealth of information. The arboretum is an invaluable Minnesota institution we should all support and show off to visitors!

The Arboretum is an absolutely beautiful place for the whole family, but you should "know before you go." Check out the website to get as much info as you can in advance. First off, now is a great time to go, as they have a fantastic Lego display called "Nature Connects." It features 13 displays using almost half a million... More

Unfortunately, we only had two hours to visit this arboretum. We got there at about 1PM on a very pleasant Friday. The parking area near the visitor center was full. It took us about 15 minutes of cruising to locate a newly vacated space. From here we enjoyed the excellent gift shop, cafeteria and gardens around the visitors center. Then... More

A go-to for special occasions, and most often it makes an occasion special. Could spend 2 days looking at all of the details - impressive depth and breadth.
