A visit to the Barnes Arboretum in Merion is a wonderful way to extend your experience of the Barnes Foundation's legendary art collection on the Parkway. Venture a mere 8 miles to explore a 12-acre hidden treasure filled with a magnificent living collection of rare plants and breathtaking blooms. If Albert Barnes expressed his passion through art appreciation, his wife, Laura, expressed hers through the cultivation of the Arboretum and the establishment of the horticulture program, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. Pack a picnic, stroll the grounds, and cultivate new inspiration at the Barnes Arboretum.
