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. A 15-mile/25-mile exclusion is enforced for organizations belonging to NARM or ROAM. This means that if the American Horticultural Society organization you belong to is located 90 miles (or less) from Winterthur, we will not honor reciprocity. NARM organizations within 15 miles and ROAM organizations within 25 miles of Winterthur are excluded from receiving reciprocal admission. Calculate distance from the organization you belong to and Winterthur using Google maps. If your membership is directly with AHS, calculate distance from Winterthur using your home address.

In addition to zip code exclusions, some special events and programs are reserved for Winterthur Members or paying guests. This means that reciprocity for AHS, NARM, or ROAM members will not be available on these program days. During Yuletide at Winterthur, all reciprocal admissions are blacked out. Thank you for understanding!
