Group Visits & Guided Tours

Are you a Smith College or Campus School faculty or staff member looking to engage your class with the botanic garden? Please submit an inquiry here and we will reach out to talk through your idea. Not looking for a guided experience? Help us track visits by making a reservation.

We offer guided tours to the public during the academic year and unguided tours to the public year round. Please schedule all groups of 10 or more people in advance. For information on self-guided tours during the summer months please contact or call us at (413) 585-2742. 

Please note: 

  • Guided tours must be scheduled at least 4 weeks in advance, unguided tours can be scheduled 2 weeks in advance. 
  • Currently, we require all group members to wear masks while inside the building.
  • Groups are limited to 40 people at one time in the Lyman Plant House.


We learned so much! And the gardens both inside and out were beautiful. The Botanic Garden staff do an amazing job in maintaining it. We will definitely plan on doing this again in a future class.
