Explore over one and a half miles of paths through formal and whimsical gardens designed to delight your senses. Exhibits include Mediterranean and Desert Conservatories, 1920's farm, Japanese and formal gardens.

Each summer, familiar orange and black monarch adults float through the Botanic Garden and flutter inside the PNM Butterfly Pavilion.  A colorful array of butterflies fills the Butterfly Pavilion.  Observe more than thirty butterfly species from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. daily (hours extended until 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays between Memorial Day and Labor Day). The exhibit is open late May through early October, weather permitting.
