Ongoing: Bolz conservatory exhibitmoreinfo


10 am - 4 pm

The trees are trimmed, the bushes pruned, and it’s time to see the light in the forest. Learn how plants develop and change in the forest as light fluctuates. When a gap in the forest is created naturally or by a clipping from Olbrich’s staff, growth develops at an exceptional rate. The conservatory is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $2 for the general public. Admission is always free for Olbrich Botanical Society members and children 5 and under, and is free for the general public on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon.


Olbrich Botanical Gardens is operated as a public-private partnership between the City of Madison Parks Division and the Olbrich Botanical Society.
