It's a lovely drive through Germantown from the city & a nice walk for 60-90 minutes. The staff we encountered were helpful & friendly. Loved the two horticulturists who explained the danger of the invasive "Norway maple!"

Beautiful landscapes of plants with magnificent gardens. The fernery is my favorite area! There is so much to see and learn we purchased a year membership to explore all year round. Great place for everyone to enjoy.

I live in the area but rarely go here. No good excuse. I went there for a wedding and was reminded of how nice it is. Nice for a walk, take in the beauty, let go of stress.

We are members and enjoy our visits to the Morris Arboretum during every season. We try to go during the week as weekends and special events can get crowded, It's a beautiful treasure to enjoy for any age group.
