Edison and Ford Winter Estates will be opening the riverside botanical gardens on Friday, May 29. Come see what’s blooming and walk through more than 20 acres of gardens in a park-like setting with large shade trees and a scenic river view. You will also be able to stroll outside under the porches of the historic homes and view into the interior lifestyle of Edison and Ford.
The new app allows you to take the self-guided tour with narration and meander at your own pace. To ensure social distancing, guided tours are not being offered at this time. The riverside will be open Friday through Monday each week, through June.
Discounted admission tickets are available for visitors and member’s guest:
Teens (13-19): $10
Children (6-12): $5
Children 5 years old and younger will be admitted free
The museum and laboratory will remain closed at this time. No coupons or other discount will be accepted. Members get in free. Purchase tickets in advanced online at Edisonford.org
The outdoor Garden Shoppe and Museum Store are also open. The number of visitors entering the indoor retail areas will be monitored to ensure enough space for social distancing. Garden staff will be on site to answer gardening questions. Members receive a 10 percent discount on all garden and gift items (excludes tickets).
Following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, staff will be wearing protective masks, and surfaces will be cleaned and sanitized.
