The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) consisting of the Conservatory, National Garden and Bartholdi Park - is a museum with a difference – our artifacts are the living treasures of the world.
The garden is a living plant museum & was established by Congress in 1820. The Conservatory reopened in Dec 2001 after a four-year renovation,with approx 4,000 seasonal, tropical & subtropical plants.
Be sure to take the catwalk through the leaf canopy in the jungle room.
Gorgeous and relaxing (when it's not terribly busy) urban refuge. Highly recommended spot.
Definitely make sure you spend time at the Botanical Gardens. It's right off the mall, near the capital, and a beautiful escape, especially on a hot summer day.
This wonderful garden is often overshadowed by the surrounding sites. Nevertheless, it contains a beautiful collection of plants and flowers. Definitely stop by, and bring a book to read on a bench!

Visiting the museums? Security's tightened; many require visitors to pass through metal detectors & have bags searched. Some sites may limit which items may be carried inside. -- Green Guide Editor
3pm: Slow things down with a walk through the United States Botanic Gardens. Free tours last 45 minutes and take visitors through the Conservatory. Nearest Metro stop: Federal Center.
here's a tip...see those signs on the water garden that says you're not supposed to reach into the water? yeah, that goes for your kids too...respect the beauty, keep em out of it
Awesome space if you're into botany or museums. It's free and has a great selection of flowers and plants. Make sure to visit every room.
It was great!! Lotta strollers and packed with families and student groups. Not the usual herd of tourists but definitely worth while a visit before it gets too cool. Fantastic green house architectür
Nice and warm on a cold day
If you're packing a lunch for your DC tour, be sure to eat it here. There are plenty of tables outside in the garden with umbrellas to shade you from the sun.
Orchid lovers come to botanical garden. There is a special room with them.
If you are serious about photographing, reserve a tripod permit before you come!
of all the places in D.C. that I've visited, this little gem is my favorite. Make sure you go up on the mezzanine in the Jungle section. Beautiful!
This is a super romantic spot if, you don't suffer from pollen allergies.
Amazing free train exhibit if you happen to come during the holiday season. 2013's theme was World's Fair exhibits from the past. Mini replicas of famous Washingtoninan landmarks add a nice touch.
Beautiful variety of plants an flowers from around the world.
Air conditioners by the restrooms are life savers in the summer
A great place to see the plants you'll never see again. After a hot day, AC and garden feel like heaven.
The Botanical Garden in D.C. is a must see, the rose garden is absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend going during the week though to miss the big crowds.

Great place to cool off. Head outside and soak your feet in the fountains :).
Great place to relax and get warm when touring DC in the colder months.

The garden railway was designed by Paul Busse of Applied Imagination in Alexandria, Kentucky. Awesome
The train exhibit that opens on Thanksgiving and runs through New Years is an annual highlight.
A place you definitely need to visit!!!
It has several different sections from different parts of the world with many beautiful trees and plant and it was really my favorite part of Washington, D.C.!!!
Decent gardens with a wide variety of cultivars.
Not so impressive!
One of DCs hidden gems. A great place to sit and relax in the middle of the busy mall
