2024 Spring Events: Immense, Iridescent, Iconic

Dinos, Butterflies and Sculptures: 2024 is Immense, Iridescent and Iconic

Excitement is growing in the Garden with multiple events and exhibitions either underway or set to open soon! We’ve got so much to show you—so much to share. Plan your visit today—or better yet, multiple visits so you can see it all.

  • Dinosaurs Around the World – Something BIG has arrived at the Garden! Dinosaurs Around the World is open now through May 30. Created in collaboration with a world-renowned dinosaur paleontologist, this outdoor exhibit features advanced animatronic dinosaurs from every continent, a multi-layered narrative, and cutting-edge research for visitors to explore. Travel back to the Age of Reptiles and experience what it was like when dinosaurs walked the Earth!
  • Butterflies in the Garden – Experience some of the planet’s most beautiful pollinators all in one remarkable place. Butterflies in the Garden takes flight March 1 through April 14 in the Rainforest Conservatory. One of the Garden’s most anticipated seasonal exhibits, guests will enjoy thousands of breathtaking exotic and native butterflies from around the world as they flutter through the lush foliage and tropical flowers in the conservatory. Don’t miss out on this rare display of butterfly beauty!
  • Seward Johnson Sculptures in the Garden – An exclusive art exhibition featuring the work of internationally renowned sculptor Seward Johnson opens March 1. The exhibit includes two of the artist’s most popular works: the Mona Lisa inspired “Reason to Smile” and the iconic V-J day scene “Embracing Peace.” On display throughout the Garden until September 1, the exhibit features 21 pieces that celebrate the power of renewal and connection through art and nature this spring. 

And that’s not all! The Garden will reach its peak spring glory as hundreds of thousands of tulips, daffodils and other bulbs will burst into bloom starting this month. And as the weather warms, beloved Texas bluebonnets will cover the South Vista, ready for you to revel in their brilliant blue.

It’s going to take multiple visits to explore it all, so now is a great time to join us as a member. We look forward to seeing you soon!
