Our website offers a number of great self-guided tours that you can download ahead of time or take with your phone when you visit.

You can also take a tour and explore on your own through our new Expeditions mobile app.

Families can also take the self-guided tour with a plant treasure map in celebration of Ernest Henry Wilson's first Arnold Arboretum expedition to Asia.

Living Museum or Science Lab backpacks can be borrowed from the Visitor Center and are suitable for families with kids over the age of three.

Activities are suitable for families and after school groups with children over the age of three. Some activities are better suited for younger kids, some work better with older kids.
