Reciprocal Admission Privileges - Winterthur Museum, Garden and Library

Exciting Benefits for Winterthur Members!


Reciprocal Garden Program for All Members

All Winterthur Members receive free admission and additional benefits when a valid Winterthur Membership card is presented at botanical gardens, arboreta, and conservatories that participate in the American Horticultural Society Reciprocal Admissions Program. 

Please visit the American Horticultural Society for a list of participating gardens, or for a printed copy, please contact Winterthur's Membership Office at 302.888.4713 or e-mail membershipinfo@winterthur.orgSome restrictions may apply. Before visiting any garden, be sure to check the garden's Web site or call to confirm participation and hours.

Each card will admit only the person listed on the card. In the case of Family and Grandparent memberships, some gardens or museums may limit free or discounted admission to the cardholder. You may be required to show a photo ID. Some special events are not included in the Reciprocal Admissions Program.

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, Truck and Tractor Day, and Wee Ones are reserved for Winterthur’s Members or paying guests. During Yuletide at Winterthur, all reciprocal admissions will be blacked out.


Reciprocal Museum Program for Contributor Members & Above

Winterthur is pleased to offer Contributor Members ($150) and above access to more than 400 North American museums as a part of the North American Reciprocal Museum Program (NARM). As well as free admission and some other benefits, some participants offer discounts at museum shops and for concert/lecture tickets. Simply present your current membership card with the gold NARM sticker to receive free admission during regular museum hours.

Please visit North American Reciprocal Museums for a list of participating museums. Some restrictions apply. Before visiting, be sure to visit the museum's Web site or call to confirm participation and hours of operation.
