Denver Botanic Gardens’ York Street location will open with capped numbers and timed tickets on Friday, May 22. Here are details on what to expect upon your return. Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms’ re-opening is yet to be determined.
Denver Botanic Gardens is home to much more than living plants; its collections also include paintings, pressed plants, rare books, dried fungi, historic photos and a whole host of other objects of artistic, scientific and historical value. As a result of state-of-the-art facilities in the newly constructed Freyer – Newman Center, these collections can be researched, displayed and cared for to a degree never before possible.
From the Vault presents some of the most beautiful, interesting and unique objects in the Gardens’ collections, most exhibited for the first time. Take a behind-the-scenes look at some of the objects that have enchanted, delighted and puzzled the Gardens’ own curators—from photographs encased in glass to plant specimens collected before the Gardens existed.
