Dumbarton Oaks will finally open its gardens to the general public next month. This news was announced by the institution last week.
Entry will be by timed tickets, which will be offered starting on May 15th. If that is too long for you to wait, season pass holders will be allowed to secure tickets for entry starting April 20th.
GM wonders if this will increase the number of people purchasing season tickets. Getting in three weeks early would be great, especially since this includes the height of the wisteria blooming. But one of the best reasons to get a season pass in normal years is to skip the (often long) line at the gate. With timed entry, the lines will be non-existent. If you think it’s still worth the money for you to get a season pass, buy it here.
