Conservatory pool full of various plants including lotuses and water lilies


Enid A. Haupt Conservatory

The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is a stunning example of Victorian-style glasshouse artistry, and a New York City Landmark. It is home to A World of Plants, which showcases the wonders of the Garden’s living collections in lush tropical rain forests, cactus-filled deserts, curated displays of palms from around the world, aquatic and carnivorous plants, and much more. From early summer through fall, the Courtyards come alive with vibrant hardy and tropical water lilies and graceful lotus.

The Conservatory also hosts the Garden’s seasonal exhibitions, including the annual Orchid Show, Holiday Train Show, and themed flower shows that reveal surprising connections between plants and culture. These immersive experiences will transport you to another time and place and dazzle you with their ingenious designs.

Please note: Restoration work in limited areas of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is taking place Spring 2019 through Summer 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.
