Open year round, ten acres of enchantment await locals and tourists alike in the New Orleans Botanical Garden.
Since its opening in the 1930s, the mission of the New Orleans Botanical Garden has been to cultivate, promote, and inspire the knowledge, love and appreciation of plants through educational programs and exhibits and to evaluate, introduce, and distribute new plant materials suitable for cultivation in the Gulf South region.
Courtesy of The Helis Foundation, Louisiana residents receive free admission on Wednesdays. Residents should show their Louisiana ID to the cashier in the Oscar J. Tolmas Visitor Center.
