Group Visits & Guided Tours

Guided Tours for the public are unavailable for the months of July and August. For self-guided visits, please schedule all groups of ten or more people in advance. 

Please note: 

  • Visits must be scheduled at least 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.

Are you a Smith College or Campus School faculty or staff member?  We continue to offer guided tours in July and August as staffing allows. Email to discuss your plans. Not looking for a guided experience? Help us track visits by making a reservation

Do you have questions about visiting this fall or during one of our flower shows? Check back in late August for updated information on scheduling visits.


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.
