Winter's chill in your bones? Visit the Margaret C. Ferguson Greenhouses at Wellesley College to explore the flora of other climates. Its 16 interconnected greenhouses are home to the most diverse collection of plants under glass in the greater Boston area.

Experience plant life from the deserts of Mexico and Africa to the rainforests of Malaysia and Brazil. Seasonal displays combine with permanent collections to present an ever-changing immersion in the wonderful world of plants.

See the wonderful article about the greenhouses (PDF) that appeared in the Winter 2010 issue of Wellesley magazine.

The greenhouses are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. Free tours are available when booked in advance. Find out more about visiting Wellesley's greenhouses!
