Is there an entrance fee to greenhouses, and do I need to pay if I am coming to purchase?

There is no greenhouse entrance fee, although a donation is suggested. The public is welcome to come at anytime for browsing and purchasing at no cost. Group tours are welcome with advance arrangement.

Are the Lyman Estate Greenhouses handicapped accessible?

Two of the greenhouses can be accessed by wheelchair. However, the Greenhouse complex has not been equipped with handicapped accessible ramps, elevators, or chair lifts. The Greenhouses were built over many years, and stairs were added between each section. Service animals are always welcome. We encourage visitors with concerns to call ahead. We are happy to work with you to make your visit an enjoyable one.

Are the Lyman Estate Greenhouses open year round?

Yes, the Lyman Estate Greenhouses are open year round, for visiting and purchases. More information can be found on the Lyman Estate Greenhouses home page.

Can I take photographs at Lyman Estate Greenhouses?

Visitors are welcome to take personal photographs, but photo equipment such as tripods and large camera bags are prohibited. Members of the media and professional photographers should visit the press room for our photography guidelines.
