We can't wait to see you again.

The Conservatory of Flowers reopened to visitors Thursday, October 1 with modifications in place to ensure public safety and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Guests will be required to wear face coverings and the Conservatory will limit the number of visitors to 25 percent of its normal capacity to ensure social distancing.

For opening week, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on October 1 – October 8, members can enjoy the tranquility of the galleries with exclusive member-only hours. From October 9 – 31, members will be given preferred access from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Admission to the Conservatory will continue to be free every first Tuesday of the month. The Conservatory will also continue offering free or reduced admission through Museums for All, a program to bring free or reduced admission to San Francisco residents who receive public benefits, including Medi-Cal and CalFresh.
