Covid-19 Update

Visit The New York Botanical Garden with a Garden Pass. America's premier garden has characterized the landscape of the northeast since its founding in 1891. Your Garden Pass includes admission to the outdoor gardens and collections. Summer brings flowering abundance to the 60 gardens and plant collections, and fall creates a riot of color in the native forest. Winter welcomes a peaceful landscape featuring stately conifers, while spring celebrates the promise of a new season with flowering cherries, magnolias, daffodils, and more. See the award-winning Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden and Native Plant Garden. Immerse yourself in stunning seasonal landscapes at this National Historic Landscape. In summer 2021, experience Yayoi Kusama’s profound connection with nature. Kusama, a contemporary Japanese artist is one of the world's most popular artists. Exclusively at NYBG, Kusama reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery. Her artistic concepts of obliteration, infinity, and eternity are inspired by her intimate engagement with the colors, patterns, and life cycles of plants and flowers. The KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature exhibition ends Sunday, October 31, 2021. From November 2, 2021-November 18, 2021, enjoy access to both indoor and outdoor elements of the Garden including the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory & Garden Tram, as well as popular areas like the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, Rock Garden, and Benenson Ornamental Conifer Collection, which will all be especially beautiful through the fall season.

Beautiful super large botanical garden - amazing it’s in NYC. Getting into the garden with my voucher was easy and seamless! Just went up to the ticket counter and went right in. Note, this does not include the additional galleries and indoor Kusama instillations, just the ones visible when walking the gardens. Still beautiful and worth it!

We loved the Kasuma exhibit! We did have a half hour delay entering the venue due to our tickets. Because we used GetYourGuide tickets, they could not be scanned by the ticket taker. Only NYBG tickets worked that way. We had to wait in line while our tickets were processed by another employee! Very frustrating!

Kept getting asked to see mobile pass at each separate exhibit & told I should go back to front of park/garden to get a printed ticket. Some exhibits didn’t want to let us in without going to the front of the garden to verify the mobile ticket. There was no way we were doing that, so they let us in. Why use mobile tickets if they want printed ones?
