The Conservatory will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, the gated outdoor gardens will be open spring-summer hours of 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Bartholdi Fountain and Gardens will continue to be open dawn to dusk.

"Our employees have been carefully tending to the living collections at the Garden throughout the pandemic," said Architect of the Capitol J. Brett Blanton. "The outdoor gardens are an oasis on Capitol Hill, and now we will be able to welcome the public back inside the Conservatory to see the beauty and diversity of the Garden's collection."

Masks are recommended for indoor spaces, and groups are encouraged to maintain social distance from other visitor groups. Visitors who are sick or do not feel well should stay home.

Visitors are invited to explore the USBG's collection of plants from across the country and around the world, and enjoy thousands of tulips and other spring flowers coming into bloom throughout the outdoor gardens.

Entrance to the USBG is free and timed tickets will not be required. Plan your visit at
