The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) is temporarily closed to the public to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus.
Whenever possible, the USBG will reschedule public programs and events originally scheduled during the closure period. Please monitor the USBG website for updates to operating status. Many resources can still be accessed online, including educational worksheets and manuals, fact sheets and more, and some of our programs will also be made available online. Find online resources at www.USBG.gov/AtHome
As a museum with a living collection, our exhibits, displays and plants are always changing. No two visits are exactly alike!
To get a feel for what you might see when you come visit the U.S. Botanic Garden, we encourage you take our virtual tour. You'll get a peek at our Conservatory, National Garden and Bartholdi Park, but the plant displays and exhibits are likely to be different each time you come.
We've worked with Google Street View to gather 360-degree imagery throughout the Garden -- both in the outdoor gardens and also inside the Conservatory! A few proposed starting points are embedded below. You can interact with them to look around and move in any direction. Every garden room throughout the Garden can be explored! Also, if you make the image full screen, you'll see a map in the bottom left that will show in blue all the pathways through the Garden where you can virtually visit. Enjoy exploring!
Proposed virtual tour starting points: Outdoor Gardens, Rose Garden:
