Lyman Plant House & Conservatory 

Regular Hours 
Daily from 9am-4pm | closed major holidays, and the Smith College holiday break

The botanic garden is a great place to visit through the seasons. Winter offers an escape to an indoor tropical paradise in Lyman Conservatory. Spring comes to life with our Bulb Show, and the Rock Garden peaks in March, April and May. Capen Garden features a dazzling spring tulip display followed by the spectacular rose arbor. Other outdoor gardens around campus are in full bloom throughout summer. The campus arboretum collection lights up with fall color and the Fall Chrysanthemum Show gives a new meaning to both autumn and chrysanthemums.

Be sure to stop in Lyman Plant House for garden maps and brochures, member information, and listings of special events and exhibits. Don't miss the exhibitions on display in the Church Gallery, the plant evolution mural, and the Woods of the World display, all at Lyman Plant House.
