Tulip Tour & Tea

We cordially invite you to attend our beautiful spring family event, Tulip Tour & Tea, just in time to celebrate mothers and grandmothers (Mother’s Day is May 13). In collaboration with Hofstra University Museum and the Grounds Department, our annual Tulip Tour and Tea will include access to Hofstra’s first building, Hofstra Hall. The Emily Lowe Gallery of the Hofstra University Museum will be open and backpack self-guided tours will be available.

Patrice Dimino, landscape designer and assistant curator, will host indoor discussions on the history of tulips. Fred Soviero, director of the grounds, and Elizabeth Dysart, Hofstra University Museum director of education and engagement, will lead tours of Hofstra's arboretum and outdoor sculptures with our tulips at their peak! 

Families are also invited to enjoy a variety of teas and sweets while attending the always-fascinating photographic history of Hofstra lecture by Geri Solomon, Hofstra archivist. Tea will be held on the David and Sondra Mack Student Center - Multi-Purpose Room.

Admission is $10 per person.  Space is limited; registration is required: Tulip Tour & Tea Registration
