250-acre estate including tree & shrub collections, specialized gardens and conservatory collections of tropical and subtropical plants. One of the oldest and largest botanical gardens in the world, The New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx is a museum of plants and a National Historic Landmark.

The Collections
47 gardens and plant collections (such as daylilies, herbs, native plants, perennials, alpine plants, roses, annuals, magnolias, and tulips, as well as thousands of shrubs and trees)

Tree and Shrub Collections

40-acres of the Forest that once covered all of New York

The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, itself a New York City landmark and the nation’s most beautiful Victorian glasshouse. It features the permanent exhibition A World of Plants.

The Everett Children’s Adventure Garden
12-acre indoor/outdoor living museum of nature discovery with 40 interactive activities including three outdoor mazes, giant topiaries, and the Mitsubishi Wild Wetland Trail. In the Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden kids are the gardeners, planting, weeding, watering, pushing wheelbarrows of plants to the compost bins, feeding the earthworms, harvesting crops, doing nature crafts, exploring pond life, and much more.
Inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, kids become explorers with Adventures for Plant Hunters. This colorful cartoon guide leads them throughout the biomes of the Conservatory in search of plants that the dinosaurs ate, plants that give us medicines, plants that we use to make chocolate and coffee.
