About Us:

Always in Season: Surround yourself with nature at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory ~ an oasis in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne Indiana. Visit the Showcase Garden with its lush seasonal displays, wander through the Tropical Garden where orchids and palms thrive in the shadows of a cascading waterfall, or retreat to the quiet beauty of the Desert Garden.

Stop and smell the flowers and explore one of the best botanical conservatories in the Midwest. The Conservatory features three distinct inside gardens, a hands-on exhibit gallery, featuring a giant talking tree and the Tulip Tree Gift Shop.

Took my girlfriend during the butterfly exhibit. This is a really cute place to come on a date. Make sure you bring your parking slip from a parking garage and they will put a sticker on it so you get free parking. Lots of cool plants from different regions and all sorts of insects and stuff. Really neat. A very kid friendly place with lots for them to do!

I have been a member of the conservatory now for 2 years. I highly recommend it to anyone who has lived in Fort Wayne their entire life or to someone who has just moved here. They rotate exhibits quarterly. They offer many community opportunities like hatching and releasing butterflies, plant shows and sales, concerts and more. They have a great area for children to play or read books and they are currently renovating the transitional spaces between the main exhibits to make them more engaging and relevant for kids. I personally can recommend their membership. You get private access to events and you get free tickets to summer concerts in the outdoor garden area. Nested into the heart of downtown, the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory is a real gem!

My son has skeeter syndrome and his allergic reactions are very serious and deathly allergic to bees. He can't really go out side without long sleeves and pants and caked on spray but today was something else!!!(chanced it outside we were having fun) We were able to go everywhere and not have to worry about being stung and I really seen him have so much fun and be a kid. Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!!!

I had taken my four children here to get out of the house for a few hours. I was surprised at how much fun they had looking at all the plant life. They enjoyed the little kids tunnel and slide, too. Inexpensive. Fun. Well worth the trip to support the beautiful bontanical conservatory.
