Low key, just beautiful nature. We go every couple of weeks all season. Great value in membership. Their publications are excellent and their plants grow perfectly so buy some.

Had I just explored the grounds of Mt. Cuba Center on my own, I would have been dissatisfied. I agree with others the $15 admission is pricey (especially when compared to other gardens in the DE/PA area where there are more plants/variety on display) even though the drive is lovely and the natural surroundings “transport” you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Where Mt. Cuba excels, however, is in its education. I took the Garden Enthusiast tour. The docent herself was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to handle almost all questions from the seasoned gardeners in the groups. For only $4 more, the tour gave me a much greater appreciation not only for the grounds, but insight into Mt. Cuba’s mission of native plants and conservation efforts. (Where else do visiting scientists count how many pollinators frequent a particular flower in the heat of summer to determine if the plant should be added to the gardens collection or not?)

If you do visit, I highly recommend you either go at a time when other events are occurring to get a better bang for your buck (check out their calendar of events), or take one of the many classes they offer in the main house – e.g. gardening classes, certificate courses, art classes, etc,

I will be sure to pass along your kind words to our docents! We hope you come back to visit us again soon and agree that coming for a class or event is a great opportunity to learn something new, but also get a chance to explore the gardens as well!

It is just a park. I would not even say there is a "formal garden". The only thing worth to see is the gate which is a piece of art. Other than that there is nothing much to see. There should not be an entrance fee ($15). If you happen to be nearby,and would like to have walk, you can do it. But Mt. Cuba Center does not worth a trip to it.

This was a surprise - I expected a wooded native garden (which delivered) but not the lovely Copeland Home and more formal garden. So wonderful to see the home and gardens preserved and all the native plants. Especially interesting was the trial garden. You can tell the property is well cared for and a delight for wanting to learn more about native plants and also those with much experience. The drive up is spectacular - winding wooded roads and take note of the iron work gate on the entrance to the drove.

An absolutely stunning botanical garden. A visit to Mt. Cuba is a perfect respite from the chaos of 2020. (Note if you're reading this in the future, it was a difficult year, to say the least.)

I am so glad we discovered this living botanical garden. Pack a picnic and just go. You won't be disappointed.

Best botanical gardens in the U.S., according to a 2020 poll? I don't think Mt. Cuba Center is even the best botanical gardens in the Brandywine Valley of Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Don't get me wrong: the gardens around the former home of Lammot du Pont Copeland (great-great grandson of DuPont company founder E. I. du Pont) are beautiful; they just don't compare to the beauty of nearby Winterthur and Longwood Gardens. And I'm allowing for the fact that I saw all of these gardens in late October, when none are likely at their peak.

Mt. Cuba Center has a small Formal Garden near the Colonial Revival-style manor house (closed to tours during the covid-19 pandemic), but where it shines is in the natural gardens surrounding it and, beyond those, the more than 500 acres of hills, streams and forests. As a display garden, Longwood Gardens was more spectacular; as a naturalistic garden, Winterthur Garden was more expansive and seemed more diverse. But the most enjoyable walk we had? Right here at Mt. Cuba Center, because of the manageable scale and the pleasantness of hiking the uncrowded Woods Path, the Pond Path, the Meadow and the Dogwood Path. 

TIPS:

* Time your visit for peak bloom periods. Go when the dogwoods are in bloom, when the azaleas are in bloom, etc.

* Check the center's schedule. We showed up on a Tuesday and discovered Mt. Cuba Center is closed on Tuesdays. It's also closed from December through March.

* The paths are well-maintained and easily walked, without difficult climbs or rock-and-root obstacles.

Hi AlpinerHut – We appreciate your feedback and great tips on when to visit our gardens. Thank you for sharing your review! We are sorry to hear we didn’t meet your expectations for “Best Botanical Garden in North America,” which was awarded to us by USA Today readers. While we may not have as expansive displays as some of our peers in America’s Garden Capital and the Brandywine Valley, we pride ourselves on our naturalistic gardens and woodland paths, which highlight plants native to our region. Our mission is to inspire and empower people to become conservators of our natural habitats. We put a great emphasis on our conservation efforts through land preservation, research, and education. Currently, we are expanding our footprint and working on several enhancements. We hope you’ll visit us again in the future when these enhancements are complete and our Natural Lands are opened for visitation, which will allow guests to explore more of our 1,000+ acres of naturalistic landscapes. If you’d like to share more about your experience, please email us at info@mtcubacenter.org. -The Mt. Cuba Center Team

The gardens are incredible, despite the fact that we saw them in the Fall, when gardens are not often at their most exciting. What made the visit especially interesting was a walk with Docent Alan. His knowledge of native plants and history of the area was fascinating. Who knew there were so many varieties of native plants with fascinating life stories!

We can't wait to be back in the spring to see yet another season. We hope that we will be lucky enough to see Alan again.

The staff were very accommodating and thoughtful. They made sure that our visit was exactly as we had hoped.

The gardens at Mount Cuba Center are gorgeous. The staff has adopted best practices for keeping visitors safe, as we learn to live with the coronavirus. Tickets are purchased on line, there is a one-way path to view the various sections of the property, masks are required and of course everyone remains six feet apart. The restrooms are immaculate and can be used without touching any surfaces. Hand sanitizer and wipes are available. The picnic area was closed on the day we visited. We just ate in the car. Anyone needing to get out for a bit will find a visit to Mount Cuba Center will brighten your mood and restore your soul.
