I have been a member of Arboretum for 20 years. It was my first pick for my wedding site. I decided to have both our ceremony and reception at the Arboretum. There were things I liked and things I really didn't like. First off I would not recommend working with Kristyn Wade from the catering department. She screwed numerous stuff... More

There are so many beautiful areas to walk or sit. The variety of plants - vegetables, herbs, flowers and trees is amazing. There is currently an exhibition of lego statues placed throughout the gardens. It was an adventure to locate a sculpture and then read about it's creation. Each one is amazing. We couldn't decide if we liked the peacock,... More

This is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. There are so many different types of plants, shrubs, and trees. The arboretum has many different types of gardens to wonder through. The bronze sculptures are beautiful. They currently sponsor a Legos exhibit. What a great experience looking for the different Legos sculptures. Their colors and composition was amazing. Fun for...

I can hardly add much to the superlative reviews already submitted. We live in St. Louis and the Mo. Botanical Garden is excellent and I would say this facility is its equal. We spent four or five hours, including lunch at their very good restaurant, exploring the gardens. We also took the tram ride and wished we had time to... More

This year the lego sculptures are beautiful and the Harrison sculpture garden has some beautiful artwork. The park is so well maintained you can visit anytime of the year and not be disappointed.

Along the road of traveling, my husband and I have visited many botanical gardens and arboretums over the years. This one in Chanhassen is worth the trip. In June, the pansies, peonies, iris, hibiscus and flowering trees and bushes were spectacular. The peonies are amazing in size and variety of colors. Iris of all colors - both bearded and regular...

I had never heard of this place and we visit the Twin Cities quite often. We were thoroughly impressed with everything that was at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. We spent about 2 hours there, however, we should've planned to spend more time because there is so much to see and do. We went during the Lego exhibit and the kids... More

Having traveled to the Twin Cities many times I am disappointed in myself for not visiting the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum until now. Every element is so thoroughly thought out, well executed, and beautiful. All ages would enjoy a visit here. There are beautiful paths that lead you to fantastic gardens, sculptures, trees, and everything you would expect at an arboretum.... More

This was my first visit here and I was blown away. It was so incredibly beautiful. I had no idea. Note: it does cost $12 a person (adult) but it is so worth it. Everything is pristine. The flowers, trees, buildings - everything is very well kept. We walked on all the paths and we were there about 3 1/2... More
