General Admission Tickets


We encourage all guests to purchase tickets in advance as we frequently sell out. 

Members and their guests do not need to purchase tickets in advance. Please proceed directly to the front desk for immediate admission upon arrival, even if tickets are sold out for the day.

General admission tickets allow entrance to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) on the selected date at the selected time until close of the same day. To ensure the best experience for all of our visitors, we encourage you to arrive as close to your ticket time as possible.

PMG’s hours may vary due to public and private events. Please refer to our calendar for updated general admission hours prior to purchasing your tickets. All visitors are expected to exit promptly upon closing.

General admission tickets for Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens are nonrefundable/ nontransferable. PMG is open rain or shine. Tickets do not guarantee entrance to all areas of PMG. Portions of PMG may be closed to the public due to weather, preservation work, or repairs.

Visitors will be asked to leave PMG if they or any member of their party do not comply with PMG’s rules and policies
