“Definitely my Favorite Place to be!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

My family and I go to the Morris Arboretum 3 times a month in Spring/ Summer and 1 time a month in Fall/Winter. The beautiful scenery and perfect weather overwhelms us for pride with our area, and we feel that the Morris Arboretum describes south-eastern Pennsylvania perfectly.

“Beautiful and educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is an absolutely beautiful arboretum. They offer tours and lectures but just spending an afternoon wandering and enjoying is well worth the fee.

“More than trees and gardens - a great outing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

The Arboretum is a great place to spend a day! The gardens are absolutely beautiful - even in the dead of winter. The Out On a Limb exhibit is truly unique and great for kids. All the paths are paved and you can push a stroller around with ease. There's room on the grass for kids to run around and play and the old-growth trees are inspirational. All of the staff are extremely helpful and you'll leave feeling better than you came in.
