United States Botanic Garden (USBG), established by the U.S. Congress is 1820, is one of the oldest botanic gardens in North America. Through the Conservatory, National Garden, and Bartholdi Park, the Garden informs visitors about the importance and fundamental value and diversity of plants, as well as their aesthetic, cultural, economic, therapeutic and ecological significance. With over a million visitors annually, the USBG strives to demonstrate and promote sustainable practices. The U.S. Botanic Garden is a living plant museum accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

The Garden offers a variety of exhibits, tours, and programs for visitors of all ages. Each year, the USBG's popular holiday show Season's Greenings features one of the area's largest indoor trees, a showcase of poinsettias, models of DC monuments made entirely from plant materials, and a fantasy train display. Visit www.USBG.gov or check at the visitor information desk upon arrival. Wheelchairs, interpretive services, and other accessibility services are available on request.

The U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory is open to the public, free of charge, every day of the year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bartholdi Park is open dawn to dusk. www.USBG.gov
