Franklin Park Conservatory

Admission to Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is approx. $24/person (less for kids and seniors).

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Columbus blooms with beauty at every turn. Indoors and out, the vast biomes, nooks, and crannies are a delight to explore. The worldwide plants and intricate Chihuly glasswork bring nature and art into harmony. Then there’s the Bonsai collection that’ll drop your jaw, a light show beginning at dusk that’ll pop your eyes, an outdoor model railway that chugs a long way, butterflies galore that’ll make any heart flutter, and a children’s garden grown with fun.

This premier horticultural and educational institution showcases over 400 plant species and special exhibitions. The Conservatory offers beautiful and diverse climates, including an arid desert, a tropical Rainforest, a cool Himalayan Mountain, and a lush Pacific Island Water Garden. Franklin Park surrounds the Conservatory and provides 88 acres of landscaped gardens and green space.  The Conservatory owns a signature collection of Dale Chihuly glass artwork, and its annual exhibits include Blooms and Butterflies, the Orchid Forest, and Holidays at the Conservatory. The Conservatory also offers a gift shop and café.
