Upcoming Free Days

Blue Star Museums

May 18 to September 2

It’s become an annual summer tradition with us — Tohono Chul is again participating in the Blue Star Museums program, a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America to offer free admission to active-duty military personnel (including National Guard and Reserve) and their families from Armed Forces Day to Labor Day.

Father’s Day

Sunday | June 16 | Free admission all day for fathers and grandfathers

Free admission into the gardens for all fathers and grandfathers all day on Sunday, June 16. Come down and enjoy strolling the trails to see all the beautiful flowers in bloom. Don’t forget to visit the Museum Shops or the Exhibit House to see the latest art show and discover what the Garden Bistro has planned too!
