Spring Enchantment Extended Hours

outdoors in spring at a botanical garden with yellow tulips and daffodils in the foreground and a pergola wood structure behind it

Thursdays – Saturdays, April 21 – 23 and 28 – 30, 4:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Please note that the spring bulbs including the tulips may not be in bloom during our extended hours, April 21-23 and 28-30, because of the cold weather we’ve had recently.

Go on a scavenger hunt throughout our 17 acres to find dozens of whimsical fairy doors waiting to be discovered. Later in April, don’t miss our amazing bulb display featuring thousands of tulips, hyacinths, and other bulbs celebrating the ISU Cyclones and Ames Little Cyclones!

Our Gift Shop and Conservatory will also remain open until 7:30 p.m. on those evenings, but the Butterfly Wing will close at 4:30 p.m.

No preregistration is required. Free for members and ISU students. Price of admission for the general public.
