In response to COVID-19, the Franklin Park Conservatory will be closed to the public for three weeks starting Friday, March 13. The health and safety of our visitors and staff is our top priority, and this decision was made in alignment with official health and government recommendations.

We are currently looking into how we can extend impacted exhibitions. We are extending Chihuly: Celebrating Nature through May 17 however, the constantly changing COVID-19 situation will impact how and when we can do this.

Refunds for ticket, class, experience and program purchases will be honored. Contact 614-715-8000.
