Good news! The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens are ready to reopen to the public on July 1st under California State and local county guidelines. 

Visitors will be asked to wear a face mask and temperature checks will be carried out at the gate. However, most of the Gardens will be accessible except for high-touch areas such as the Children’s Garden and Rose Hills Foundation Conservatory. 

In addition, there’s going to be limited capacity initially (around 1,500 visitors per day max) and you’ll need to make an advanced booking with a specified time slot. 

About The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens:

The Huntington Botanical Gardens encompass a 120-acre site in San Marino, California featuring 16 exquisite themed gardens. 

Personal highlights include the stunning Chinese Garden (the largest of its kind outside of China) featuring graceful waterfalls, pavilions, and stone bridges:

I’ve long been fascinated with the world of flowers and floral design. This might have something to do with growing up on an organic flower nursery in the rural French countryside where the sweet spring and summer fragrances emanating from the fresh blooms have never left me. Today, my passion has led me to further explore the world of horticulture, botany, floral design, and floristry and I'm always excited to meet and collaborate with fellow enthusiasts and professionals across the globe.
