Group Admission

Specially priced group rates are now available for orders of 15 or more people visiting together

Content Detail

Group admission rates can be offered on orders of 15 or more people purchasing tickets in a single transaction. Group admission makes check-in at the gatehouse easier than with general admission. Group admission can be planned, purchased, and reserved further out than general admission is available, allowing groups the opportunity to plan well ahead of time.

Please note if you are a member of The Morton Arboretum with a Morton 6 to Partner level membership, please email the Registrar’s office at to discuss the most economical options for booking your group admission at your membership level. For group tickets to Illumination: Tree Lights at The Morton Arboretum, please call the ticket hotline at 630-725-2066.

The Registrar’s office handles group admission inquiries and admission discounting of 15 or more.

Groups should fill out this form at least two weeks before their requested visit date. This allows the Registrar’s office time to process their request. Requests made less than two weeks in advance cannot be considered for the discount rate, and visitors will have to purchase their own tickets online.
