Tour Request

The Visitor Center is closed from November 1st until March 31st, 2022. We do not offer docent-led tours during the winter. Tours will resume April 1st, 2023.

You are welcome to take a self-guided audio tour year-round. Our grounds are always open to the public! Thank you for scheduling a tour this year.

We hope you’ll join us for another in 2023!


Our trained docents lead garden tours that share the transformative story of this historic property. Group tours usually last one hour and include a brief walk (or transit cart support for persons with mobility limitations), interesting information about the garden and its history, and time for browsing in our Visitor Center.

Tour requests must be scheduled in advance using our online tour request form (below).
