The Aquatic House

Conservatory

Discover the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory and Plants from Around the World

Discover our magnificent glasshouse with galleries featuring aquatic plants and vines, lush tropical rain forests, cactus-filled deserts, and many other natural habitats—and its palm dome, an architectural gem with majestic soaring species from around the world.

Conservatory restoration projects occur approximately every 20 years, and help ensure that the collections beneath it continue to thrive. The newly designed and replanted palm collection highlights the history of tropical plant research at NYBG and the economic and ecological importance of the palm family—presenting new plants that help us better tell the stories of palm diversity, conservation, and evolution.
