The Wild Rumpus at Tower Hill Botanical Garden

A few weeks ago I met a friend at Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, MA to see the Wild Rumpus Stickwork exhibit. It was my first time at Tower Hill. What a beautiful place!

Wild Rumpus is inspired by the famous children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. The Stickwork exhibit feels like the magical towers sprouted right from the ground.

I love art exhibits you can touch and experience – which makes this a great exhibit for children. In addition to the Wild Rumpus “castle” you can walk along a trail in the woods that contains signs that feature pages from the Where the Wild Things Are book.

Tower Hill has shared a time-lapsed video of creating the Wild Rumpus – you can see it here.

Admission to Tower Hill is $12 per person. I reserved my local library pass and was able to get in for $6. Boylston residents get in free on Thursdays. Parking is free.
