Note that our site is free to those who wish to explore on their own.  The garden is open from dawn to dusk year-round with the exception of City-observed holidays.

  • Guided tours ensure the most enriching experience for learners of all ages.  We offer two different tours for you to choose from:

The HIDDEN HISTORY TOUR provides you with an in depth look at the physical space of Bartram’s Garden and its significance in the history of botany in America.  The tour will take you to each of the historic buildings, including a peek inside the oldest greenhouse in North America, built by John Bartram in 1760.

The GARDEN TOUR will lead you through the 11-acre historic garden and focus on the plants in the garden.  We will pay particular attention to centuries old trees planted by the Bartrams themselves and still thriving in our garden today.  We’ll also go to the edge of the often unseen lower Schuylkill River where you will find John Bartram’s stone cider press, carved over 200 years ago.

  • The garden is located on the banks of the Schuylkill River.  It is in the Southwest neighborhood of Philadelphia at 5400 Lindbergh Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19143.  CLICK HERE for Visitor Basics.
