The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens

San Marino, California

Upon entering the conservatory and getting hit with its warm, humid air, you immediately become aware of the tropical rainforest, carnivorous-plant bog, and cloud forest environments that this facility re-creates. Over in the plant lab, hands-on exhibits take basic botany lessons out of the textbook realm. Of the 207-acre property, 120 landscaped acres are open to visitors with their more than 14,000 different varieties of plants in more than a dozen principal garden areas, including the Children's Garden, Jungle Garden, and Desert Garden.
