KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
- All tickets are online ONLY (no walk-ups). You choose an arrival time. For daytime admission, the Garden is open daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. We also have extended hours on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
- Children under age 3 do not need a ticket.
- Garden members must reserve their free tickets for daytime admission. Please avoid “no-shows” as it prevents others from being able to visit. Members, if you cannot attend, please cancel your ticket.
- Members if you have not used our online ticketing system before, you will be asked to “create an account” (our online ticketing system is separate from our membership system).
- See a step-by-step with visuals showing tips to purchase/reserve daytime tickets.
- Masks are required indoors at all times and outdoors when 6-foot social distancing is not possible. Exceptions: children under age 5 and those with medical conditions (if so, please physically distance at all times for the safety of all). Please read our measures in place for your safety.
- See “What To Expect”(below) and our frequently asked questions to ensure there are no surprises and you make the most of your visit!
- Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we are unable to provide wheelchairs or strollers during this time. Please feel free to bring your own wheelchair or stroller. Learn about accessibility regarding pathways, amenities and more.
- Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable to another date. The Garden is open rain or shine and only closed for severe inclement weather. Any weather-related closings are posted to lewisginter.org or social media.
- On your first visit to the new online ticketing system, you will be prompted to create an account with your email address, password and contact information. Members, you do not use your membership account to purchase tickets; ticketing and membership are two separate systems.

A family member can reserve 2 adults and up to 6 children’s tickets. Friends members can reserve up to 4 adult and 8 kids tickets. Not a member yet? It may be your best deal; learn more about member benefits.
