An Enlightening Longwood Gardens Experience


Longwood Gardens presents a unique twist on your average walk through their 1,077-acre gardens.

British artist and light designer, Bruce Munro, created site-specific light installations throughout the gardens, an exhibit that will be open day and night in both the indoor and outdoor gardens until September 1. This exhibit is the first of its kind in the United States, and includes such attractions as a field of light flowers, a meadow of color-changing towers, and a walk through delicate “raindrops” made from lights.

Longwood extends their evening hours to 11 p.m. from Wed-Sat for the duration of the exhibit. They are also hosting special events, including outdoor concerts, family fun nights, lectures and discussions on light technology, and even four-course dinners served amidst the exhibit.

Tickets for the exhibit are available online at longwoodgardens.org/Light.html, at the gardens” visitor center, or by phone at 610.388.1000. Members may enjoy a free preview the event on June 7-8 from 5-11 p.m., with a reservation. Admission to the gardens is $18 for adults and free for children.
