BALTIMORE MAYOR STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-BLAKE
The historic Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens is ideal for weddings, birthday parties, social functions, charity events, receptions and company meetings — whether you need an indoor or outdoor setting for your event. Contact us for availability, rates, and a tour of the facilities.
Each Sunday of the month is learning time at the Conservatory, where our popular Plants and People program offers something for children, adults, and families.
This year the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory reaches a remarkable milestone: the 125th anniversary of it’s opening in 1888. We look forward to bringing you exciting activities and events over the coming year that will celebrate the Conservatory’s past and keep its future blooming.
The Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens has distinct environments that allow the display of plants from all over the world. The buildings create an appropriate environment for plants from tropical, desert, and Mediterranean environments.
Come in and see why Margaret Stansbury was so inspired to write “Glass House of Dreams.” We have copies of the book for sale, as well as prints of photographs from the book and prints of historic postcards, all of which celebrate Baltimore’s Victorian glass palace.
