All aboard! The Paul Busse Garden Railway returns to the Grand Mallway this summer.
Guests can make a return trip to their favorite destinations: Fairytale Land, Wild West Town, European Travels and the animal-themed Who Lives Here. 9 g-scale model trains travel across over 1,000 feet of track that runs high and low through the themed destinations.
A miniature world of 51 botanical models made from all-natural plant material opens itself up for exploration as the trains whirl around you. Special elements to find include an enchanted tree hollow, two waterfalls, a bubbling brook, and plantings specific to each theme.
Support by The Columbus Foundation, Greater Columbus Arts Council, and Ohio Arts Council.
The exhibition Diálogos will feature works by seven local Latinx artists. These artists represent Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico and the United States. The artworks exhibited represent a variety of mediums, including installation, new media, printmaking, and painting.
We’ve decked the Conservatory’s halls, and they’re blooming with holiday spirit! Visitors can spend the season amidst extravagant scenes featuring hundreds of unique poinsettias, the poinsettia trees and more!
The Conservatory will be closed on November 24 and December 24 & 25.
The outdoor Conservatory experience glows with stunning, themed light displays. See new displays such as the light show in the rainbow tunnel, a disco dance party and a musical light show in the Grand Mallway. These fun new additions are featured alongside returning favorites, including ornament trees, the Whirly Tree by Tork Inc. and a larger-than-life gingerbread house.
