    Never again
    So we ended up here at the NYBG. Pretty but so not worth the price of entry the Alice and Wonderland exhibit cost extra to see I u sweat and that BUT even the conservatories with the plants that in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens are included.

    An Oasis in the heart of the Bronx
    Visited the NYBG for the annual orchid show. Simply beautiful. The grounds are a show themselves with the cherry blossoms and tulips blooming. I want to visit again in the fall to enjoy the colors of the many different trees.

    Great experience
    We visited the garden in March, the flowering of the cherry trees, the magnolia trees, the tulips and Daffodils was amazing If you would like to relax a little bit from the intensive city, its one of the best option

    Awesome Experience and well worth it!
    We were there for the Holiday Train Show and it was such an interesting and beautiful experience! I am very happy we chose to add it to our trip adventures! I certainly would go again if I am every in the area!

    Train Show magical, Glow was a low point
    We paid extra for Glow and gave NYBG a prime evening slot in order to see the lights. I was so disappointed, there were only a few random displays spread out. Glow is not worth it at all. On the other hand the trains were delightful, but they are open all day and cost less. No need to go after dark for Glow, nor to pay for it.  We've seen better lights in a town of 15,000, and visited Atlanta's Botanical Garden last year for a magical holiday light show.  Not sure what is up with NYBG but Glow was a huge bust for us.

    Great trains! Other disappointments, though…
    Positives: the model train displays are fantastic. Very photo-worthy! Lots of detail in the displays. Biggest negative: when you buy your ticket online and download it, to my knowledge, NOWHERE on it does it tell you that must go to a ticket kiosk and show them the barcode to get a PAPER ticket…paper! So after trekking to the beginning of the entry line, we find this fact out (paper ticket needed) and practically had to run to the kiosk. Two workers—neither really knew how to do this! That’s why they are there! Finally, a manager was located and she showed the undertrained workers how to do their job. Other negative: how is such a beautiful jewel of a park/garden NOT decorated, even a little, for the season? Disappointed in that.

    Worth the trip
    The garden and buildings are lit up beautifully for Christmas. The train show is spectacular, an ode to everything great in New York. Definitely worth the trip. Food and drink available for a price and there is plenty of parking on southern boulevard right in front.

    Quite a disappointment
    Total bust, very few lights on display, we were very disappointed. Not worth travelling to the Bronx to see the "glow".

    Beautiful Respite
    The New York Botanical Garden is a stunning respite in the midst of a chaotic city. The membership is well worth it as you can not only go there any day, but it's tax deductible. The well-kept grounds are beautiful and accessible for a short walk, a day of exploring, or a hike on the trails. As a member, you can sit and read a book in a quiet corner outdoors on a beautiful day, or enjoy the garden's offerings of seasonal flowers. I encourage every local, from the boroughs or beyond, to join the NYBG for their own peace and joy!

    Gem of the City
    Marc Hachadourian knows what he's doing! It is so hard to believe this exotic, gorgeous oasis is in the midst of NYC. This is my second time and it never fails to thrill. Some of the orchids are so exquisite - so unreal, you cannot believe what you're seeing. The only downside for us is that it is so popular that it is crowded. But it has every right to be popular! Don't miss next year.

    Beautiful Orchids
    Visited the Orchid show last week and it is absolutely beautiful! We arrived around 12noon the main parking lot was already full so everyone was directed across the street to park in the lot for Fordham University. Parking is $22. Then there is a line to get in and it was mobbed! But once in and you see all the amazing orchids you forget about the crowd.

    2023 Orchid Show Not Worth It
    Orchid show this year is not worth seeing. I have attended each year for the last 10 years, and this year was very disappointing in comparison. By far, the majority of the orchids displayed are the most common type, typically sold in HomeDepot/supermarkets. I never heard of the "designer" Lily Kwong. I assume she is a nice person and all, but the show was so poor, I wanted to understand more about the so-called designer. The NY Times and Forbes fawn all over her orchid work, despite the fact both publications make it glaringly obvious she has little, if any orchid knowledge or horticultural education. In fact, it appears her main recommendation is her adherence to Woke dogma concepts like "sustaninability", being simpatico with "imigrants", and the usual self-absorption with identity. This quote from the Forbes review pretty much tells you all you need to know: "[Kwong]...is the first woman and the first person of color invited to be a guest designer for The Orchid Show. " Frankly, I don't quite understand what being a woman, or "person of color" has to do with being credible as an orchid show designer. Go if you must, or take in the orchids at Home Depot and save your money

    Scammed - promised free tickets via email, refuted on arrival
    Bunch of scammers - they sent an email promising free tickets at the window. When we showed up, they proudly announced that that was "a mistake" and we would have to pay $35 each. This is illegal and they're skating by on the value being small enough not to be worth chasing.

    Holiday Train Tour
    FANTASTIC. Great for kids of all ages. Models of famous NYC landmark buildings from all 5 boroughs. Everything was made of all natural fibers. Plants, acorns, sticks, leaves, etc. True learning experience.

It was hot. 85-90 degrees. I strongly suggest you arrive close to opening and go straight to the Main Tram Stop. Ride it all the way around to determine where everything is and where you want to go first. I did just that, and it was the only time I saw a tram in action. I walked from the empty main tram stop to the library. I planned to take the tram to the rose garden, which are about as far apart as possible. Afterward, I waited for a tram. And waited. None came. The ticket person at the library informed me that the trams were being refueled. Luckily, the maps are comprehensive. I found myself on a dirt trail in a forest with pretty waterfalls. In the Bronx. Imagine that. I figured I would take the tram from the rose garden back to the main stop. None came. I walked to the next tram stop, then the next, then the next. 75% of my four-hour visit entailed walking in the hot sun along the tram path. I had come on a bus with a group, and literally had to race to get to the bus on time. The only place I saw to fill water bottles were at the main buildings. I was overheated, dehydrated and dusty from walking on the forest trails. The flowers were nice. Ebony Patterson's art installations were interesting.

What a lovely place - a real tranquil setting away from the hustle/bustle of the city.

Lovely grounds, great trees/shrubs and plenty of wildlife around - extremely peaceful.

We saw blue jays & a humming bird, both of which we don’t get back in the UK.

We took the metro from Grand Central Station, which required a change to a bus in the Bronx, when in fact the train (only a few dollars more expensive) was far quicker and arrives opposite the side entrance to the gardens.

Would come back again when next in New York.

Beautiful 250 acres of lush gardens, forest, wildflowers and themed areas. The conservatory was a highlight. So many orchids in bloom. The all garden pass includes the Tram ride through the gardens.

The New York Botanical Garden sits in the midst of a very busy urban center, The Bronx, New York. However, it’s as if one has been transported to a piece of paradise. Ever so often you might encounter a highway signage that will remind you of were you are. The garden is a beautiful space and a way to reinvigorate both mind and body.

We were looking for a place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and found this gem. While I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in spring, it was still lovely even in November. The free tram gave us an overview of the park, and the conservatory offered a warm place to see plants from other regions n full bloom.

If you are into nature this is a wonderful place to visit. The entry fee is pricy, $30 for adults. It is more than a garden. I attended classes on healing plants, herbal teas, plant based cooking and more.

I enjoyed walking around here on a beautiful spring day. It is easy to get to via the Metro North from Grand Central to the Botanical Garden stop. Twenty minute ride and the station is right at the entrance. The Alice in Wonderland exhibit was on when I was there. The tram ride is included and is informative. Don’t miss the rose garden and the conservatory.

It's a lovely place!!! but I see it more as a beautiful outdoor setting to enjoy more than a place to view all kinds of flowers (as to me, "botanic garden" would signify). there are lots of trees and lawns and wooded paths. we mostly only saw flowers in the conservatory and the rose garden - which were both fantastic! it was hotter than we expected so took the tram even though normally I'd rather walk. if you can find a parking spot on the street save your $22.

I didn't think I'd be that bothered about botanical gardens as I'm not majorly into plants, but I went to the orchid show and was blown away by how amazing everything looked. It was so peaceful in the gardens too. I ended up buying a yearly pass, but my pass didn't come in time to one of the free tickets to take my friend to the gardens, so I reached out to membership support and a great guy called Matthew sent me tickets until mine pass arrives, he was so nice. If you don't care about plants, go, you'll still love it. If you do care about plants, you'll be in heaven.
