NYBG/125: Celebrating Our Anniversary

With NYBG’s 125th anniversary on the horizon, we’re looking forward to 2016—a year of lively new exhibitions and events to celebrate this momentous occasion. Join us as we near this milestone by sharing your favorite memories of the Garden!

November 21 – January 18 

Holiday Train Show®

NEW AND BIGGER THAN EVER. Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, all under the glow of the Haupt Conservatory. This year’s exhibition features 3,000 square feet of extra space for new trains, bridges, and tracks.

Select Friday and Saturday Evenings, November – January 

Bar Car Nights

On these nights exclusively for adults 21 and over, the wintry landscape of NYBG sets the scene for festive outdoor adventures, with an after-dark viewing of the expanded Holiday Train Show®—cocktail in hand.


What's Wonderful in Fall

With the changing leaves and crisp fall air comes a season packed with exciting exhibition programs, after-dark events, and outdoor activities to bring urban explorers back to nature.


Fall Classes

Enjoy a brand new season of classes in Floral Design, Botanical Art & Illustration, Gardening, Landscape Design, Botany, Horticulture, Crafts, Horticultural Therapy, Photography, and Wellness.


Donate Today & Help Us Plant Them

NYBG turns 125 years old in 2016! To celebrate this milestone, we will begin a dramatic expansion of the historic Narcissus plants at Daffodil Hill in October 2015. And you can help us reach our goal.


World Flora Online Announced

At the 34th annual Founders Corporate Dinner, The New York Botanical Garden saluted two generous funders—Google Inc. and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation—for their support of NYBG's leading role in World Flora Online.
