Admission fees going up at Minn. Arboretum 29 Mar 12

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) – It will soon cost more to enter the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.

The public garden and horticultural research center in Chaska is increasing its daily admission fee to $12 for adults and youths ages 13 and older. That’s a $3 increase over the current fee.

The new fees take effect Sunday. With each paid admission, visitors will receive a voucher for a free return visit. It must be redeemed within 30 days.

The current daily fee is $9 and has been in effect since 2009. Children through age 12 will continue to be admitted free.

The arboretum will continue to offer free admission every third Thursday of the month after 4:30 p.m., from April through October.
