Member Exclusive: Behind The Velvet Rope at Gardens by Moonlight
Love Gardens by Moonlight? Become a member for special access to explore more of Vizcaya. Every Gardens by Moonlight features an exclusive, Member-only program inside Vizcaya’s Main House. Each month is a different program. Registration required and space is limited.


Do I need a separate ticket for a garden tour?
Yes. Free tour tickets are available on a first come, first-served basis after you’ve checked into the program at the orientation tent.

What time are tours offered?
The first tour of the night is always 6:30 p.m.  From there, we offer tours based on demand. The tour schedule is usually 7:00; 7:30, and 8:00 p.m. but that is subject to change.

How late can I arrive?
We open the gates at 6:00 p.m. and you can arrive as late as 8:00 p.m.  If you want to take a tour, we suggest you arrive no later than 7:45 p.m.

What should I wear?
While there is no dress code, Vizcaya’s pathways are often uneven gravel pathways. For that reason, we suggest comfortable footwear.  Additionally, the entire program is outside in the gardens.  Wearing (or bringing) a sweater or jacket is useful as it cools down once the sun sets.

Can I explore the Main House?
We designed this program to highlight the gardens. Parts of the Main House are accessible to members participating in the “Behind the Velvet Ropes” member-exclusive experience, but otherwise the house is not open.  Not a member? Join here!

Is there food or drinks?
Vizcaya’s Cafe and Shop are open to purchase light bites, refreshments or a glass of wine during the program.

Is there live music?
Yes! We are please to have live music on the East Terrace to listen to while enjoying the gorgeous bay views!

How come this isn’t every month?
Though we are all South Florida residents, and know how to live in South Florida weather, we suspend Gardens by Moonlight during the warmer (more humid) months.  We program something each month, though, and often the summer programs take place inside the Main House.  Keep in touch with us by subscribing to our eblasts or following us on Facebook.

Can I bring my kids?
Sure, but we do not design the Gardens by Moonlight programs for families.  If you are looking for something to do as a family, Vizcaya offers monthly family programs. Each one is different, and is designed for adults and kids to work together.  For more information, subscribe to our eblasts or follow us on Facebook.
