The New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum, a major educational institution, and a renowned plant research and conservation organization. Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, it is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States, distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope and excellence of its programs.
There is always something new to see, smell, and smile about. With a variety of gardens and collections on our 250 acres, the endless array of plants and flowers will activate all of your sense.
You’ll find this 250-acre oasis in the middle of the Big Apple. The New York Botanical Garden’s historic, Victorian-style glass house provides a world tour of 11 distinct plant habitats, including a tropical rain forest and desert environments of the Americas and Africa. Two of the garden’s major events are its spring orchid exhibit and its winter train show.
