Enid A. Haupt Conservatory

Year Round

This Victorian-style glasshouse takes you on an ''ecotour'' around the world and across the ages.

Opened in 1902, the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is a New York City Landmark--and a "must see" destination all year-round.

At any time of year (and without bringing your passport) you can explore a tropical rain forest, a cactus-filled desert, and an ever-changing landscape of flowers and foliage. All of these remarkable plant worlds live right here, inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.

This Victorian-style glasshouse is home to A World of Plants, a permanent exhibition that takes you on an "ecotour" around the world and across the ages. Through 11 distinct habitats--including two types of rain forest; deserts of the Americas and Africa; and aquatic and carnivorous plant displays--A World of Plants tells the story of Earth's beautiful and indispensable plant life, plus offers a glimpse of the valuable work of the Garden's scientists.

The Conservatory also hosts the Garden's seasonal flower shows and exhibitions, including the Orchid Show and Holiday Train Show.
