Membership at Lan Su

A membership to the Lan Su Chinese Garden offers infinite paths to discovery. One visit just isn’t enough to take in the depth and abundance of experiences. The garden is ever-changing -- by the minute, by the hour, and with the seasons. Something as simple as the shifting of light throughout the day can dramatically alter the garden’s appearance and your experience. You’ll always discover something new at the garden.

Golden Chrysanthemum Membership

As part of Lan Su Chinese Garden’s commitment to improve the membership program, we have redefined the $1,000 giving level to combine the Chrysanthemum membership and the Empress Wu Women of Infamy Giving Circle. The result is the new Golden Chrysanthemum membership with added benefits and opportunities to meet and learn with a wonderful group of people who actively support the Lan Su’s mission.
