Brooklyn Botanic Garden Is Offering Free Admission All Winter

When it comes to looking for winter activities to do you may not immediately think of exploring the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, but you may want to reconsider!

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is offering free admissions on weekdays to all visitors throughout the winter. While ticket purchases will still be necessary on weekends (at $15) you can enjoy the wintry grounds free of charge from Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

While you may not think there would be much to see during the winter, you’re mistaken. The Steinhardt Conservatory has a one hour tour from Tuesday through Sunday (1 p.m. until 2 p.m.) that brings you “the exotic flora of tropical, desert, and Mediterranean climates without leaving Brooklyn.” You can check it out until March 31.

There are also winter nature walks you can take with “naturalist Bradley Klein and look for birds, mammals, and insects that remain active in winter, and observe clues hinting at life sleeping through the season.”

Free winter admission will run through the end of February.
