About Linnaeus Arboretum Gustavus
Serene and bubbling with nature, the Linnaeus Arboretum is the ideal location for a variety of events. Located on the edge of Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN and just a 15-minute drive from Mankato, Linnaeus Arboretum gives your wedding and other special events all the advantages of being located near the big city coupled with the private feel of a quiet natural setting. Outdoor Venues The Linnaeus Arboretum grounds are beautiful year-round. Choose your own unique backdrop for your special day - whether it is beautifully-manicured lawns and gardens, bright spring blooms, or colorful fall foliage. Your guests will love the diverse features of the Arboretum – ponds, prairies, woodlands, vintage cabin, labyrinth, formal gardens, orchard, and more. The grounds are also open to wedding parties for all your photography needs. Melva Lind Interpretive Center The Interpretive Center features 20-foot high ceilings with exposed beams. Its wood paneled walls add charm to this warm, intimate setting. Patio doors provide an airy atmosphere on spring and summer days and a yellow-tiled wood-burning fireplace lend ambiance during the cooler Minnesota months. Enjoy the birds and flowers just outside the windows and the formal gardens that circle the building. The maximum capacity of the Interpretive Center is 75 people.
