Garden Railway Member Preview

Enjoy the new Paul Busse Garden Railway before the Conservatory opens to the public.

There will be two Member Preview days: July 1 and July 3. Both will be from 8-10AM. Per our new ticketing procedure, Members will need to reserve a time slot in advance.

The new exhibition features model trains whirling through 1,122 feet of track in the Grand Mallway and four unique botanical themes: Fairytale Land, Wild West Town, European Travels, and the animal-themed  Who Lives Here.

The preview is limited to the outdoor areas of the Conservatory where the Garden Railway is located. Members are welcome to continue visiting the Conservatory after the preview.
