Freyer - Newman Center

Freyer - Newman Center

The Freyer – Newman Center is a physical manifestation of the Gardens’ celebration of the fusion of science and art.

The Center houses the Helen Fowler Library, the Sturm Family Auditorium, art galleries, herbaria, classrooms, the School of Botanical Art & Illustration and the Copper Door Coffee Roasters coffee shop. The Gardens’ holdings are unique because horticulture, plant conservation and preservation, mycology and art unite to document human relationships with these elements and the larger environment. Housing each of these programmatic elements in a single facility makes these assets more accessible to the public.


The Freyer – Newman Center galleries are included with admission. 

Free admission to the library for members and the general public. Admission to the Gardens is separate.

See the schedule for films in the Freyer – Newman Center Sturm Family Auditorium. Included with admission. No reservations required.
