Admission is per person; buy your admission tickets in advance to get the best pricing and to ensure your preferred date and time, a parking fee is purchased separately. Members always receive free admission and parking.
With plan-ahead pricing, nonmembers can get the best pricing on per-person admission tickets by buying in advance. Preregister in advance for free admission days to ensure entry; parking fees apply for most nonmembers.
Note: Some gardens may be closed due to special events. The Garden follows all state and Cook County guidelines that are in place to mitigate COVID-19.
