New York Botanical Gardens (NYBG) - 1 Year Family Membership

Established in 1891, The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is distinguished by the beauty of its landscape, collections, and gardens, and the scope and excellence of its programs in horticulture, education, and science. NYBG was inspired by an 1888 visit that eminent botanists Nathaniel Lord Britton and his wife, Elizabeth, took to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, near London. The Brittons believed New York should have a great botanical garden to advance public understanding of plants, be a repository of rare and valuable specimens, and lead original research in botanical science. Because of its picturesque terrain, freshwater Bronx River, rock-cut gorge, and 50 acres of old-growth forest, the Garden was sited on the northern half of Bronx Park. Today, the 250-acre Garden—the largest in any city in the United States—is a National Historic Landmark.

This one-year, Family-level Membership to the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) includes:
- Year-round admission for 2 adults + 5 children under the age of 16 to Garden grounds, the Conservatory, the Children's Adventure Garden, and into special exhibitions including the holiday train show and orchid show.
