You don't realize what a gorgeous sight this place sits on- right in the middle of Bronx - until you are inside! we love walking around and checking out exhibits, plants and the beautiful grounds. Last visited during the holiday train show which is a must see every couple of years if not every year. This by far, is one... More

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in NY. I went with my husband to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit. It was beautiful. The place is very well kept. We had some drinks at the restaurant which were delicious. you must try the guacamole

It was our first time there, but we will definitely be back! They had art projects and planting projects for the children that integrated the theme. There was even... More

Walking around these gardens is like you are being transported to a world of beauty and awe. The grounds are tremendous and beautiful and any show you go to just takes your breathe away. If you are in the area or even if you are not, this so worth the day or the train trip to get here. The backgrounds... More

My husband and I went to see the Holiday Train Show which was held in the Enid Haupt Conservatory. Here we saw many trains chugging through the plants. Placed among the plants or on platforms were iconic New York buildings and bridges created from twigs, leaves, seed pods and acorns, scaled to the size of the trains. The conservatory itself...

Make sure you allow plenty of time to explore the gardens, there are little carts that drive people around. A Frida Kahlo exhibition was on when we visited and it was just amazing.

We have made a special trip for two years now to go the train show. It is really spectacular. There is timed entry, make sure you get there in plenty of time and expect to pay for parking, not necessarily close by either. The trains and miniature landmarks are awesome, but you are only supposed to walk one way and... More

We visited briefly and had lunch in the restaurant. Great place! Not open for the Christmas event we have heard about. I'm looking forward to seeing in the spring.
