Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens offers four different types of tours:

  • Self-Guided Tours allow your group to explore the Conservatory at your own leisure and pace. There is no surcharge for this option.
  • Conservatory Tours are one hour in length and focus on our plant collections, history and current flower show. A $2 surcharge per person applies. Limited to 60 guests. 
  • Production Greenhouse Tours are one hour in length and take you behind the scenes to learn how we grow and care for Conservatory plants from a knowledgeable staff member. If your group would like to experience the rest of the Conservatory, please allowed extra time as these exclusive tours cover the Production Greenhouse only. A $5 surcharge per person applies. Limited to 15 guests. 
  • Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) Tours are 60-90 minutes in length and focus on the sustainable aspects of the building and landscape of our research, education and administrative facility, designed and built to be one of the greenest buildings on Earth. The tour covers topics including green design, blurring the line between the build and natural environments, renewable energy, rainwater harvesting and green roofs. A surcharge of $2 per person applies. Limited to 40 guests.
