The United States Botanic Garden (USBG), established by the Congress in 1820 is one of the oldest botanic gardens in North America. It is a living plant museum dedicated to demonstrating the aesthetic, cultural, economic, therapeutic, and ecological importance of plants to the well-being of humankind. Public facilities include The Conservatory, Bartholdi Park, and The National Garden. Admission is free. The USBG is an agency of the U.S. Congress affiliated with the Architect of the Capitol.

The Conservatory, a historic landmark of the nation's capital, opened in 1933 after the USBG was moved to this location. It closed in 1997 for extensive renovation and reopened in December 2001. It features living plants from tropical rainforests, deserts, and subtropical regions from around the world. The East and West Galleries host permanent and temporary exhibits.

Bartholdi Park, named for the sculptor of its historic fountain, is a home landscape demonstration exhibit. The Administration Building for the Botanic Garden (not open to the public) is also located there.

The National Garden features a Regional Garden with plants native to the Mid-Atlantic
Region of the United States, a Rose Garden featuring the national flower, a Butterfly Garden, and the First Ladies Water Garden.
