While you can't buy tickets online, you can purchase them in the gift shop with a credit card. Masks are encouraged for visitors and the floor has socially distant markings.

New Exhibit

Visit Burritt for the “Whimsical Woods Flip Flopped” exhibit. Your favorite storybook characters and a few new friends are back on the mountain, but with an educational twist! Their homes in forests, plains, and oceans around the world are being damaged by pollution, deforestation, and wildfires, and they need help from Will, Felicity, and the other heroes of the Whimsical Woods.

Keep your eyes peeled throughout the park for enchanting sculptures from recycled materials, including the marvelous Flip Flop art from Ocean Sole Africa. 

From Ocean Sole Africa:
“Our process is manual, not machine. Each piece is made with care and love, the story of each product begins as a flip-flop on someones feet, then its thrown out and ends up in the ocean. We collect it, clean it, compress it, and then carve it into beautiful art to be revived again with love. Through the process, oceans are cleaned, jobs are provided, masterpieces are made, and in the end, you get something truly special and unique.”
