Had a great time. Did not take a tour - I don't know if they offer tours, but definitely walked around the place. Great setting for a wedding - was a great time.

This has been a family favorite for years. It's a beautiful setting with a lot of nature to take in at a leisurely pace. It's an extra bonus to be there when the model trains are running or there is another special exhibit.

These are the most impressive gardens I've seen on the east coast. The area is large but still very walkable and has areas for all ages. Even though we visited in June after the spring flower season, the area were still full of summer blossoms. The outdoor trains are a definite must see.

We stayed in Philadelphia for the week and had an extra day to explore outside the city and decided on Morris Arboretum. This place is amazing! Our 2 year old loved exploring the gardens, the birds nest and tree house. And the trains! We absolutely loved the gardens and if you have a few extra hours to spare, I highly recommend making the trip here. Before we got into the gardens we had to pay, $13 each person (I think) and we thought that was pricey but after visiting the gardens, I would pay it again. Pack a cooler for a picnic, tons of benches/chairs to sit. And the staff was very friendly.
