Nice garden to spend the afternoon. Family friendly, a mix of intresting sculptures, ruins, and exhibts that change regularly.

I'm a member and I go to the Morris Arboretum several times per year. The grounds are lovely, pleasant and peaceful. Bikes and dogs are not permitted so it is very family friendly and good for young children. Don't expect much excitement. There's a train...More

I'm going to be in the area at the end of February. Is there going to be much to see? Or should I wait more until the spring?
