The Arboretum’s popular outdoor walking tour of Winter Lights returns with thrilling new light displays, including a new 22 foot tent of lights, an ice luminary display by Jennifer Hedberg and a 3D walk-through apple in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the University of Minnesota’s first Apple introduction. BEFORE YOU GO … BUY tickets in advance. We have significantly limited the number of tickets due to social distancing. Arrive at least 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled reservation. DRESS for the weather: there is limited indoor access, the lights are outdoors. ONE way paths: for everyone’s safety, we have created one-way paths through buildings and light displays to reduce congestion.
