The Friends of the Conservatory (FOC), in partnership with Seattle’s Department of Parks and Recreation, is pleased to announce that the Conservatory will waive all admission fees beginning Christmas Eve through February 2019.

** Facebook won't allow us to set the event date to end on Feb 28th so while it says until Feb 21st above it's really until Feb 28th. **

This is made possible by a generous donation from the Bennett-Shear Family – a gift from the children to celebrate their parents’ 40th wedding anniversary.

Son Emmett Shear said, «We grew up walking to the Conservatory during my whole childhood, and I know my parents want everyone to be able to enjoy this beauty and peace. In their honor, I’m excited to be able to invite people to come for free to the Conservatory again.” (Prior to 2013, the Conservatory was a free experience.)

The Friends of the Conservatory and the Department of Parks and Recreation share the Bennett-Shear Family’s excitement in bringing back free admission for this short time period.

We encourage everyone, especially those who have never visited before, and school groups planning field trips, to take advantage of this opportunity to escape the winter climate at no cost.

The Conservatory’s Poinsettia and Holiday Train Display will be
up and running through January 1, 2019, and the FOC offers free Docent Tours by appointment only, Tuesday through Sunday (except the First Saturday of the month).
You can schedule your Tour by emailing [email protected]

Regular admission will be reinstated on March 1, 2019.
Adults $4, Youth $2, Kids under age 12 are always free.

Many thanks again to the Bennett-Shear Family for making the Conservatory accessible to all during this holiday season.
