Visitors are invited to come take an evening stroll around the property while also enjoying some beverages. Guests will also get to listen to talk in the Moonlight Garden about fragrant plants and the history of the garden.
The openings for “Strolling in the Moonlight” coincide with dates that a full moon will be near. Visitors will be able to stroll the grounds at their own pace and can walk onto the porches of Thomas Edison’s and Henry Ford’s winter homes. Small groups of 10 people will be escorted into the Moonlight Garden for the presentation. Masks are required for all Moonlight Garden talks. Guests may also watch a video about the Moonlight Garden in the historic Edison Caretaker’s House. Masks are required in indoor spaces throughout the site.
Discounted admission for the nighttime openings will be $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Artichoke and Company will be on site with a cash bar, and Coastal Dayz Brewery will have beer available for purchase. Guests may bring a lawn chair or blanket to relax and watch the sunset. Tickets will only be available online at EdisonFord.org. The museum and research laboratory will not be open.
