The mission of the Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens is to foster an appreciation and understanding of plants from around the world and the vital roles they play in our lives. To achieve this mission, we welcome visitors to enjoy the Conservatory in a variety of ways:

Visitors are welcome to explore and enjoy the Conservatory on their own; however, guided tours of the Conservatory can be arranged for adult groups. More info here.

The Baltimore City Horticultural Division staff stages two annual floral displays open to the public:

• Spring display

• Holiday display

Check our calendar for details.

The Conservatory and outdoor gardens are unique places for weddings, meetings and special events. They are made available to private parties and organizations. For rental information, contact our events coordinator by e-mail or at or 410-396-4860.
