Glass in Flight Opening

New Exhibit & Fun for the Family

October 21, 2023 10:00 am -
October 21, 2023 1:00 pm

Bring the whole family to the Susan Garver Family Discovery Garden for the opening of Glass in Flight, where you will be dazzled by 21 steel and hand-cut glass sculptures of gigantic, realistic insects – including butterflies, dragonflies, and bees. Guests of all ages can also make an insect-related craft to take home, get up close to some “creepy crawlies” in the Insect Petting Zoo, and learn all about the dragonflies that love the Garden’s pond. We will have music, food, and drinks, as well. Wear your best insect costume for a chance to win fun prizes.

Glass in Flight, and the Family Fun Day activities, are included in general admission to the Garden.

Houston Botanic Garden offers free parking for most events, which are often held in climate-controlled environments, rain or shine. If you have specific questions, please email
