Events & Programs

Programs and events throughout the year focus on interpreting the Museum's 152-acre campus and helping visitors find practical applications for horticulture in their own lives. Our popular Perennial Premiere occurs every year in April and includes hundreds of varieties of plants. The greenhouse also offers a wide variety of garden-related classes and workshops.

Don't miss free tours of Lilly House and the Gardens, which are available free to members or with general admission!

Audio Tours: Free Audio Tours are available for both Lilly House and the Garden. Visit the Lilly House Welcome Desk to rent a listening device, or visit imamuseum.org/gardentour on your smart phone to take the Garden Tour, or imamuseum.org/lillytour on your smart phone to take the Lilly House tour.
