We’re opening the Museum early to celebrate the arrival of spring and the annual Hanging Nasturtiums Courtyard installation.

Enjoy live music, breakfast bites, and a behind-the-scenes horticulture talk.

This is a special event only for members at the Supporter level and above.


Hanging Nasturtiums

Every April, cascades of flowering nasturtium vines are draped from the Courtyard balconies, signaling the beginning of spring and continuing a practice Isabella started in her time. The vines are grown from seeds sown in late summer and cultivated in the greenhouses through winter. Ten gardeners are required to create the Hanging Nasturtiums installation, and the result is a stunning display seen nowhere else.


Courtyard Circle and Contributor levels $20 each | Supporter level $30 | Children under 12 free
