Although we went when it was still a little chilly and most things had not yet started to bloom, it was still a great visit. We took a one-hour walking tour (the tour guide was great) and then went on the three-mile driving tour. Everything we saw, we enjoyed. We will be sure to get a membership so we can go more often. The only downside: a lot of obnoxious kids running around (not a great thing for people like me who find children extremely annoying.) But I was easily able to look past that. If you're in Minnesota, you have to visit here!

We LOVE the Landscape Arboretum! We visited last year on the National Free Parks day and quickly decided to become members so that we could enjoy it all year. You can take tours that are VERY informative about which plants they have and can grow well in Minnesota. You can walk or drive through the beauty depending on your energy level. It is a peaceful getaway for an hour or a day.

Great place for workshops, and a relaxing beautiful place to visit. Worth a membership...take lots of time and don't miss the spring flowers!

The Minnesota Landscape Arboreteum is a jewel of a place and a must-see attraction. If you enjoy nature, gardening, beauty - you will find that and more at the Arboreteum. Each season brings a different experience and it's own kind of charm. Aside from the grounds themselves, there are a number of events and programs throughout the year as well as hiking trails, garden paths, and my favorite (especially in autumn) - Three-Mile Drive which winds through woods, wetlands, and themed gardens. Admission is free on Thursdays November - March and every third Thursday April - October. To really experience the Arboreteum, consider purchasing a membership. If you are a frequent visitor you will quickly recoup your investment, with the added bonus of supporting a great organization. To find out more, check their website at www.arboretum.umn.edu/ This is a great place to take out-of-town visitors - they will love it!

A great way to spend a day. We always walk the trails and pathways to enjoy the beautiful landscapping and wonderful flowers. We normally go in the summer when the annuals and roses are at their peak
