Before dusk, explore gardens awash in brilliant blooms and enjoy live music in the Beer Garden. As darkness falls and Light’s eight installations—some with sound, some static, and all beautiful—begin to come on throughout our indoor spaces and outdoor vistas, experience, Light at your own pace and in any order—from the breathtaking Field of Light with 18,000 illuminated bulbs stretching across the Large and Small Lake landscape, to pulses and streams of light and sound with SOS in the Orchard, to the immersive sensory environment C-scales in the Exhibition Hall—and join us for that evening’s Illuminated Fountain Performance. There’s even more fun to be had afterward, as we remain open—and Light remains on view—until 11:00 pm. 

On View Thursday–Sunday Evenings Through October 30, 2022

Timed Tickets required. Member reservations required after 3:00 pm. Reservations not required for Gardens Premium Members and Innovators.

Audio Descriptions Available

Audio files with audio descriptions of each location are available for Light: Installations by Bruce Munro. Nicole Sardella voices the audio descriptions. The audio descriptions use words to describe the landscape and artwork, as experienced in the summer season.

Returning to Longwood Gardens is a bit like coming home ... I am excited to return to this remarkable place and to share with guests new works that I hope will inspire them through the interplay of nature, landscape, and light.
