Garden announces reciprocal admission program with Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Botanic Garden is excited to announce a limited Reciprocal Admission Program with Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

“We are happy to provide the children, parents and caregivers of our region with access to our Garden, and the opportunity to be outdoors, connecting to plants, particularly during this time” said Keith S. Kaiser, Executive Director.

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is temporarily closed until January as a precautionary step to slow the spread of COVID-19. Over the past year, the two institutions collaborated on the design of the Garden’s new Pollinator Trail exhibit.

Continuing that partnership made sense to provide engaging activities for children in an open space. The Garden will welcome museum members, with free admission, on Wednesdays starting 9/9 to the end of the year. In return, Pittsburgh Botanic Garden members will be able to visit that museum, free of charge, on Wednesdays from January 1 to April 30.

Children’s Museum members will use a special discount code, received from the museum, to apply when reserving a timed admission ticket using the Garden’s website.
