The flowers were beautiful and the location was great. Loved the gardens but especially the Childrens garden. My nieces loved all the places to play and explore

A beautiful place that I'd forgotten about. Took my parents and uncle there to enjoy the Orchid Show, which is not to be missed, even though it gets crowded. So much so, I redeemed my vouchers towards a family membership (something I never do!)....continued

Fine. Show always nice shot of spring. However paid $17 for tkt via Goldstar and had to choose specific date. Could have bought at garden for only $18 (senior rate) and no need to pre-purchase. Probably wouldn't buy via Goldstar next year...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: The New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden is a museum of plants, an educational institution, and a scientific research organization. Founded in 1891 and now a National Historic Landmark, it is one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world and the largest in any city in the United States, distinguished by the beauty of its diverse landscape and extensive collections and gardens, as well as by the scope and excellence of its programs in horticulture, education, and science.

The Botanical Garden's curated living collections contain more than 1 million plants; its Continuing Education program is the largest and most diverse of any botanical garden in the world; its Children's Education program has been a pioneer in innovative, informal science discovery facilities and activities; and its scientific research on plants and fungi is unmatched in scope, depth, and authority.

The Garden offers a sweeping 250-acre landscape, 50 curated display gardens, an expansive 50-acre native Forest, and a wealth of programs, exhibitions, and activities for visitors to enjoy. The grounds display masterpieces, some dating to the 1840s, by many of the nation's most accomplished architects and designers, both past and contemporary. The Botanical Garden's innovative programs, unparalleled resources, and talented staff are rivaled by few and exceeded by none.
