Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens – Your Complete Guide

First time at the Bellagio Conservatory Botanical Gardens? Here’s what you need to know.

The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is one of the iconic Vegas things to do on the Strip. We visit every season when they change their decor and again when we have visitors (and we get them a LOT. Friends love visiting Vegas more than NY, CA, and OR combined).

Since we’ve been taking so many photos and videos of their seasonal displays, we decided to share them all in one place, along with our best local tips.

About the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens

The Bellagio Conservatory transforms the 14,000-square-foot space into a new imaginary world each season. I’m always impressed by how they keep all these plants alive and beautiful when I struggle with the few I have.

Bellagio has 120 gardeners alone, and then you add in the designers, engineers, and electricians, and you have a massive team.

How often does Bellagio Conservatory change?

The Horticulture and Engineering teams work on these massive displays five times a year. They also replant and repurpose the living plant materials as much as possible.

Where is the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens?

The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is easy to find. The lobby and front desk will be to your left as you go through the main entrance. Pass under the Chihuly glass art sculpture on the ceiling and continue straight. You will see an opening and a vast 50-foot glass ceiling from there.

  • The gardens can get quite crowded. The best time to visit is early morning when most people are still asleep.
  • Some installations look completely different during the day (natural light) and night (all lit up).
  • The exhibits are big. A wide lens is needed to capture the scale of everything.
