Reciprocal Admission

If you are visiting Winterthur as a member of a reciprocal organization, please note that although the AHS website does explicitly say that our 90-mile exclusion is enforced, due to Winterthur’s special relationship with the Tyler Arboretum, the Morris Arboretum, the Delaware Center for Horticulture, and the University of Delaware Botanical Garden, we are happy to welcome their members to our garden including garden tram tours. However, Winterthur member events and museum programs like Terrific Tuesdays, Enchanted Summer Day, Squeaky Wheels, Tummy Time, and Wee Ones are reserved for Winterthur’s Members or paying guests. During Yuletide at Winterthur(11/22-1/4), all reciprocal admissions will be blacked out. Thank you for understanding!
