April 29, 2019 – May 31, 2020
Beginning April 29, the palm dome of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will undergo restoration to ensure that the collections beneath it will continue to thrive for years to come. We will continue to offer exciting exhibitions and programs in the Conservatory during this time.
Listen to Todd Forrest, Arthur Ross Vice President for Horticulture and Living Collections, explain the process below.

Please note: Restoration work in limited areas of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is taking place April 29, 2019 through May 31, 2020. This requires a temporary closing of its Palms of the World Gallery and two adjacent galleries to enable routine maintenance on the dome above it. The majority of the Conservatory’s galleries remain open during this period presenting plants from around the globe, except between May 13 and June 1, 2019, when three galleries will be open.
