The Enid A. Haupt Garden covers four acres and is situated between the Smithsonian Castle and Independence Avenue and has provided a welcome respite for Smithsonian visitors since it opened in 1987 as part of the redesigned Castle quadrangle. Composed of the Parterre, the Moongate Garden, and the Fountain Garden, the Haupt Garden’s design brings together the cultures and architecture of the surrounding museums and buildings.
Groups of ten or more can request garden tours. Request a group tour.
