Museums for All Info

Community Days The first Sunday of every month is Community Day; tickets cannot be reserved for these dates. We still ask those who have the means to support the Conservatory through admission to consider visiting another day so Community Days stay true to their purpose of increasing access to the gardens.

Guests who do not reside in Columbus or Franklin County can still visit on these dates but they will be required to pay General Admission.

The Conservatory can still reach capacity. Member attendance will be taken into consideration for capacity levels and members can continue to access the Conservatory on Community Days. The number of guests will be kept to an enjoyable and safe level.
