Members Gallery Talks and Curator-Led Tours are a great way to learn behind-the-scenes details about the Garden from curators, managers, and scientists. To ensure all Members get a chance to participate, Members are permitted to attend one tour per month. Reservations are required. All Curator-led Tours and Gallery Talks are approximately 45 minutes to an hour, unless otherwise noted.
