Group Visits and Tours

Groups may schedule a two-hour guided tour with personalized service from our knowledgeable and friendly staff. Please schedule at least two weeks in advance.

Experience a lesser-known side of Mt. Cuba Center with a unique opportunity to ride through natural areas not typically open to the public. Our wagon travels through rolling hills and grassland fields, where you’ll hear about Mt. Cuba’s land management, conservation efforts and restoration projects.

Self-Guided Visits are ideal for groups that would like to explore the gardens at their own pace during regular hours. Docents are located throughout the gardens to provide information and answer questions.
