Dow Gardens is please to announce the renovation and expansion of the 1975 Alden B. Dow-designed conservatory. The design optimizes current spaces and provides flexibility for plant collections and special exhibits. The project is slated for completion in 2022.

more ways to enjoy

From quietly contemplating exotic plant species to witnessing a butterfly in flight, you'll find many new ways to enjoy your visit. The design enlarges and opens up the main room, creating a light-filled space ideal for both engagement and reflection. This new layout will allow for intuitive guest flow with a brand new welcome area. Additional improvements include renovation of the restrooms and the creation of a dedicated butterfly "pinning room" with a public viewing window.
