Reciprocal Admission

If you are visiting Winterthur as a member of a reciprocal organization, please note that the AHS website does explicitly say that our 90-mile exclusion is enforced and a 15-mile exclusion is enforced for NARM and ROAM.  This means that if the AHS garden you belong to is located 90 miles (or less) from Winterthur, or the NARM or ROAM organization is located 15 miles (or less) from Winterthur we will not honor reciprocity.  Calculate distance from the organization you belong to and Winterthur on Google maps.  If your membership is directly with AHS, calculate distance from Winterthur using your home address.

In addition, Winterthur member events and museum programs like Enchanted Summer Day, Terrific Tuesdays, and Truck and Tractor Day are reserved for Winterthur’s Members or paying guests.  Reciprocity for AHS, NARM, or ROAM members will not be available on these days.  During Yuletide at Winterthur, all reciprocal admissions will be blacked out. Thank you for understanding!

Explore and Save
Members of qualifying local garden and museums are welcome to apply their Brandywine Valley's Explore and Save discount towards general admission. A list of qualifying gardens and museums can be found here.
