2013 Grand Floral Displays
Whether you need a break from the dreary winter rain or an escape from the busy summer, the Conservatory's flowers are here for you and your family to enjoy!
In 2013, instead of monthly rotating floral displays, the Conservatory will feature four grand floral exhibits.
Visitors over the age of twelve will be asked to pay a $3 admission fee at the door during the six week period of each of the four floral displays to help subsidize the cost of producing those plants. The Conservatory will remain free to all visitors for the 27 weeks when the special floral exhibits are not on display. Membership in the Friends of the Seymour Conservatory also provides unlimited free admission all year.
