San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers

The Conservatory of Flowers is a Victorian wood-and-glass greenhouse in Golden Gate Park, filled with rare and unusual species of tropical plants and flowers. Our mission is to connect people and plants in a place of exceptional beauty.

The Conservatory of Flowers has captivated guests for more than a century. This gem of Victorian architecture has a long and storied history and is the oldest public wood-and-glass conservatory in North America. As a city, state, and national historic landmark, the Conservatory remains one of the most photographed and beloved attractions in San Francisco.

Whether you’re a native San Franciscan, a visitor from another side of the world, or a classroom of budding botanists, the Conservatory of Flowers offers an intimate up-close experience with rare and unusual plants unlike any other!


The Conservatory of Flowers is wheelchair accessible for both motorized and non-motorized chairs.
