A first visit to Gardens Aglow for our grandchildren and they thoroughly enjoyed. The grounds are beautifully lit and the kids had fun doing the reindeer scavenger hunt. Likewise, they were mesmerized by the ice sculpting. The Carousel was a favorite with the girls while the trains in the exhibition hall attracted my grandson. Great ideas for holiday and dinner...

Visited with extended family to enjoy a night time stroll through the lights. Wonderful display and tour through the museum and train displays. The Santa was grand. Thanks so much for a great evening of family fun.

We went here at Christmas time to see the lights and the car show and were treated to a Celtic string band. A nice selection of cars not too many and the building is really neat. The holiday lights were less than we expected however. $18 each to get in seemed high

My wife and I took our two grandchildren to Heritage's "Gardens Aglow" holiday display. We were all excited to go and were all disappointed when we left. It just didn't measure up to our expectations, grandchildren included. Perhaps we expected too much. It was very crowded so if you decide to go, pre-purchase your tickets online ($18 for adults, $7... More

We enjoyed walking around all the flowers. There is a building with old cars in it. That was very nice as well. They have different sculptures as well. They have a small cafe.

The age of the site makes the gardens really great. This is definitely the primary draw for the site during the spring and early summer. Plan to do some walking, however there is a golf cart to help those that may need some assistance to or from key points within the attraction. If you are bringing a stroller for small... More

Wonderful gardens to droll through with an abundance of activities on site! Scavenger hunts, car museum, maze, laberynth, carousel, and so much more! Hidden hollow with its tree house and abundance of activities for children! The magnolia caffe and the art gallery! Just wonderful for the whole family! Plan on spending a full day!

Stunningly beautiful gardens to walk through. The automobile collection is fascinating. My wife, who usually has a low threshold for car museums really got into this collection of perfectly restored cars. It was fall and the grounds provided a gorgeous walk. I can't imagine how nice it will look in Spring. Also, this is a NARM museum, so you can... More

It had been a while since we visited Heritage Museum and Gardens. Not an awful lot to see, although the antique cars are wonderful. If there is not much in bloom, the gardens provide a peaceful place to walk without a WOW factor. Special exhibit on movie costumes made us think we are not watching the right movies (missed a...

The antique cars are beautiful and fun, be sure to stop by the kiosk where the kids can take a head shot in their favorite car and get a post card emailed to them that they can share on Facebook! The carousel is beautiful and the teens rode it multiple times. The grounds are gorgeous and a beautiful place for... More
